Earthy aromas of truffle, tilled soil, leather and forest berry merge with pressed rose petal and a whiff of game. Smooth, structured and savory, the poised palate delivers crushed strawberry, juicy Marasca cherry, clove and licorice. Firm polished tannins and fresh acidity provide support. Drink 2020–2030.
