On the nose, blackberry and black currant are complemented by notes of clove and baking spice. Plum and dried, dark cherry combine to create a rich palate that demonstrates bold notes of cedar and a touch of liquorice. On the finish, the Appassimento style is evident in both the approachable tannin and incredibly smooth finish.
