Made with Nerello Mascalese and a drop of Nerello Cappuccio, this offers earthy aromas suggesting ripe dark-skinned berry, tilled soil, game, truffle and leather. The gamy note follows through to the firm palate, along with mature Marasca cherry, anise and clove. A licorice note wraps up the finish.
