A tribute to the late Angelo Rocca, this delicious wine opens with aromas suggesting leather, truffle, mature black-skinned berry, fragrant blue flower and a whiff of menthol. The smooth, full-bodied palate offers mouthfuls of red cherry, juicy raspberry, and a note of cake spice while fine-grained tannins provide polished support.
