Dark ruby/violet rim/ clear edge – very nice color.
Signature graphite, dusty earth, and bramble aromas offer depth to this “old Bordeaux Merlot clone” made in a Claret-style. Dark Plum fruit with overtones of anise, tobacco and spiced oak add complexity. Nice soft entry for Molinari, the tannins have been tamed by time and the palate delivers a rich, smooth texture. Plums and briary, brambly dark berries, turned dark soil with mineral tones deliver on the palate….much better with decanting or 20-30 minutes of air time. This wine is designed to enjoy with food; pair it with grilled meats. Only 278 cases produced.
