Tasted On 12/12/2010
13% ABV. Opened and poured through the Vinturi into a decanter, followed over three hours. Initial nose of deep blueberry and light blackberries with just a touch of pepper. On the palate blueberry shows first along with some other dark berries. The fruit is clean and fresh yet there are some really aggressive tannins from front to back. Some secondary tobacco notes present on the edges. Though not 'jammy', there is some jam/jelly fruit as well. The finish is quite long with some bay leaves and eucalyptus notes that show in most of Gabriele's wine. Nice wine, drink now or over the next year.
