"Currant and toasty oak character defines this dense and powerful red. Full and chewy. Structured and impressive. Very New World. Best after 2012 Winemaker's notes: The 2007 harvest was immediately distinguished as exceptional, the natural culmination of an ideal growing season. During the winter months the vineyards in Montalcino benefited from abundant rains, allowing the vineyards to build up reserves that ensured an excellent and promising harvest. The spring months were mild, with sparse rains and little heat stress. Consequently the maturation of the grapes was gradual in ideal climatic conditions, with hot and sunny days and cool nights, resulting in sound, healthy fruit. A deep, almost opaque, ruby red greets the eye. The initial fragrances on the nose are cleanedged notes of dark fruit, such as wild blackberry and black cherry, which slowly make way for more pungent impressions of balsam and wild herbs. More evolved nuances of tanned leather and spice make for an impressive finale. The palate is notable for its magisterial structure, but at the same time for its warmth and velvety, rounded mouthfeel. Supple tannins and a supporting vibrant acidity contribute significantly to the wine's overall impressive balance and harmony, perfectly completed by a lengthy, longlingering finish subtly edged with ripe fruit."
