Tasting Notes

This is a dark Sangiovese with scents of big dark fruit to match.  Rich black plum and black raspberry jam, with hints of eucalyptus and cola nut, that swirl through the nose with creamy taffy and kahlua.  The fruits evolves on a soft palate, from black sour cherry and black currant, to cassis with a hint of wood spice that rolls down to a lingering dark cherry.  It’s more than one would expect from Sangiovese.
