This wine is jam-packed with flavors and scents of smoked meat, cured ham, black truffle, charcoal, pencil lead, toasted nuts. It's a powerhouse that fascinates and resonates, sailing into a lingering finish that keeps all the various components in play. A perfect mix of fruit and barrel, not to be missed.
