This was a gift from a good friend. Wasnt to sure what to expect, but decided to have bread (artisan whole wheat) with dipping oils and balsalmic vinegar. Upon opening, nose of red ruby fruits and pencil lead/graphite. Color tones on pouring was lighter than expected, light ruby red. We are NO experts on Italian wines, so wasnt to sure what to expect. Initial taste theres was NO fruit, extremely earthy and meaty. As I began to finish the first glass (10-15 mins), small amounts of fruit began to come out. Second pour, and everything had changed, as expected. Lush ruby fruit, specifically rasberry, with still hints of earthy notes. Very smooth, not harsh. Was a very enjoyable bottle and will purchase more in the future.
