Bright red. Flint, ripe red cherry and sweet spices on the very ripe and forward but ultimately fresh nose. The sweet spice notes and a refined, austere mouthfeel are typical of the S.Angelo in Colle terroir. Closes juicy and fresh, with lively flavors of red cherry and more sweet spices, plus hints of underbrush. Ages one year in both used 30-50hL oak barrels and used barriques, then spends six months in bottle before being released for sale. Made from 15-year old vineyards.

Pretty floral and berry character here with walnut and spice aromas that follow through to a medium to full body, juicy tannins and a lightly chewy, tannic finish with just a hint of new wood. Give it a little time to come together. Drink or hold.
