Made in the smoky-earthy-fruity style--not a fruit bomb. I like both styles. This had good fruit under the smoke and a nice nose.

Kind of a strange wine. Enjoyable, but strange. Served with about 20 minutes of bottle decanting ahead of it. Pressboard cork in the bottle. The nose is kind of a dark raspberry liqueur with a hint of raspberry ice cream. The wine pours a medium bodied red into the glass. Nose is intense. Actually rather nice. The front of this wine is sharply acidic with raspberry and strawberry. The middle almost has some kind of fig note in addition to the raspberry and strawberry. The finish is a tad bit sweet and probably the one thing I preferred the least here. Not much tannin on the finish. No acid on the finish, no pepper. Nice wine, probably would have been better with food, but I served it "a la carte" -- drink now. I don't think this one has any chance of aging.

This being said, I haven't had the opportunity to open my 2013 yet, so I really ought to reserve the possibility that this might be a departure from the typical robust sangiovese from this producer.
