Berry fruit and oak-based spice set this one in motion, but surprisingly, given the fat nose, the palate is rather lean. It's mostly dry, with tart cherry, cranberry and red currant. The finish is also leaner than many from this class, and although the wine is hardly devoid of fruit, it lacks style. A blend of Sangiovese, Cabernet and Merlot. —M.S.
