This Brunello-style clones boasts grape harvest aromas of red fruit and cedar wood. Very well made, pristine, chiseled and sharp–but bold and generous at the same time. There’s a touch of almond and alfalfa followed by softer tones of pureed berry and exotic, masculine spice with a hint of leather chaps. Decidedly foreign with interspersions of an unnamable black fruit; rum cake, dry fudge, prune, black pepper, pipe tobacco, and cured meat. A beautiful ensemble with deep, deep layers of beauty. A big, opulent pleasure bomb with lavish layers, loaded thickly on top of one another. Pair it with the right person or mood. In food, think: Eritrean, Ethiopian, Greek, or an early Anthony Bourdain travels to Southeast Asia.
