Savoury, fresh, youthful.
This IGT baby Super Tuscan is primarily Merlot with other red varieties. The different varietals were fermented separately in small steel tanks to maintain their individual characteristics. The alcoholic fermentation was followed by malolactic fermentation, again in steel tanks and then aged for 10 months, partly in Ornellaia's barrique and partly in cement tanks.
Black raspberries, strawberry jam, carob, roses, licorice and cola spices are blanketed over marmite and grilled sausage aromas. It has a lovely fresh entry with power and generosity; still youthful the red fruit, cocoa, cedar and tobacco flavours need a little time to smooth and integrate. Decant if drinking now, or hold for 3-5 years.
