"(a blend of Torriglione and Rocche dell' Annunziata): Saturated deep red. Slightly funky aromas of red fruits, prune and old barrel; a bit porty. Then much fresher in the mouth, but still with some funky barrel notes to the red fruit and licorice flavors. Very ripe for 2006, with the oak notes giving the wine a high-toned quality. Finishes with substantial dusty tannins. - Stephen Tanzer "
