It’s a DOCG wine out of Italy.  It tastes good when you chill it prior to uncorking.  Strong tannins with your typical aged grape taste.  I find the wine spicy to drink, it must be drunk with food.  Tannins mellow out the next day.  I will need to decant this wine on a future uncorking.  This wine is too advanced for my beginner palette to appreciate.

Pros should taste orange, ripe fruits and almonds.  None of which I was able to detect.
