On the nose aromatics of cassis/anise and that core Cabernet-esque blackcurrant. Tobacco leaf and mocha adding to the mix, while Teroldego offers the mountain herb and concentration. Medium bodied yet with some density to go with the finesse. Spicy red/blue fruits, coconut and star anise meld with the dark fruits. A potpourri of exotics.
The palate shows minty blackcurrant, dark plum and eastern spices. The creamy mouthfeel is generous and inviting, with driving acidity and gentle tannin assisting. Briary red/black-fruits to lead to a long finish.
