Good full ruby. Deep, reticent, almost austere aromas and flavors of spicy dark plum, currant leaf, underbrush, coffee and graphite. Multilayered and complex; polished tannins provide backbone to the rich fruit. This still-brooding wine finishes long, displaying outstanding inner-mouth perfume. Strikes me as by far the best, most polished young Tancredi in memory; this is a wine in which rustic notes of hot-climate Cabernet Sauvignon almost always used to dominate. An almost 50/50 blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Nero d’Avola, plus small amounts of Tannat and other grapes. Drinking window: 2018 – 2023. (Ian d’Agata)
