A hint of black rubber and licorice, with black and red fruit on the nose. A light-bodied, fruit burst on the front end with blackberries and strawberries in the lead. Fades quickly and smoothly into a light tannin finish, with echoes of leather and tobacco. This went great with Ligurian traditional food, the octopus in particular. I drank about half the bottle and shared the rest with the staff at Il Borgo di Campi’s restaurant outside of Riomaggiore in Cinque Terra, Italy.
