Double decanted for 30 minutes. Dark red. Rich pure nose of red and blue fruits; almost liqueur of raspberries. Smooth on the palate with good richness but a bit of heat and oak at the finish. More elegance than other Rochioli SVDs (except East block), but that is a relative term as these are big ripe wines, but have a certain quality.
Pnp, deep ruby, nose of wood spice, red and blue fruit and a creamy smoky note. Good extraction and concentration, smooth tannin, acidity leaning on low side that was overwhelmed by the heavy use of new oak. Too American and new world for my liking.
