(2011) Field blend, mostly Nerello Mascalese, also Alicante Bouschet, Uva Francesa, and a small percent of white grapes - softens the wine a little. Lovely pale colour, beetroot and vegetal rhubarb qualities, but that stone and asphalt character. No fruit here that I can discern. The palate has a huge, dry presence, but fruit still shy: some chicory and liquorice, and a fine, dry medium body. This is a tank sample.
