Ruby garnet in the glass, pretty nose, initially tight but with air opens wonderfully. Broad and immediate red & dark fruits, lovely heady mix of ripe black cherries, dried apricot, fresh red fleshed peaches and sour cranberry. Palate is compact in youth, red & black fruits, woven with floral scents, rosemary, bay & charred meats retaining glossy richness and bright acid. 36 months in French tonneau & botti yield silky sweet tannins framing this edgy, iron-rich palate. The finish is firm, peppery & mineral, showcasing the calibre of the Santa Restituta terroir. Drink 2024-2040
