Assessed from a bottle purchased at the LCBO. Bright deep intense ruby-purple colour. Youthful, slightly spicy, intense, ripe, plummy, red cherry nose with some mineral-tinged, lovely, cedar-sandalwood notes. Dry, medium-full bodied, well structured, harmonious, slightly spicy, youthful, intense, ripe plum-cherry flavours with a lingering, high acid, gently cedary, mouthfilling, sandalwood-tinged finish. This blend of 90% Sangiovese and 10% Merlot has14% alcohol and according to the LCBO 6 g/L residual sugar (although I think that it is under 3 grams) with a new lot number L081020 on the back label.
