"Having not seen the Valsacro wines for several years, it's nice to know that they are up to good things. This is a dark wine dominated by aromas of cassis liqueur and earth. It's lively and structured, with layers of toasted berry, chocolate and black pepper flavors. Shows a lot of shadings and trimmings, including creamy oak on the finish. Drink now and over the next two years. - Michael Schachner"
