One of my favorite Italian wines because it of its consistency - with notes of red plum, fig and cherry, accented by tobacco and spice. This picked up steam over time and seems to have plenty of life left. Good acidity and overall flavor.

Was expecting something more distinctive, or maybe I wasn't in the mood for an AFWE-type, austere wine. Light cherry, black tea, and violets.

I like the WA take on this bottle which rates among the best I've had this year ... black fruits on the nose and entry palate, with notes of blackberry, black currant, black plum and elements of masala chai, juniper and earth. And the mid-palate and finish show a balanced, somewhat sweeter character with fresh and lively red fruits. Terrific cab that has me excited to try some of the R-M SVD cabs I cellared.

In this case, I was thinking "black tea" but decided to use a slightly more offbeat descriptor - masala chai is a spice-infused black tea (to my knowledge).
