A heady world of cherry opens up immediately: aromatic Morello and dark Amarena vie for attention on the nose. The palate is full-fruited but has a backbone of freshness that gives this both verve and balance. Tannins are supple but it is the central vein of freshness that characterises the brightness and unforced honesty of this joyous red.
