01 Cennatoio, Innominato

Black toffee nose with a red berry backbone. Subdued strawberries. The weak blueberry you'd expect from an inexpensive cab/merlot. This wine is less about fruit and more about the structure, which is itself obnoxious. Acidic earth fights with medium tannins and, while the earth is nice, the tannins and acid come to overwhelm and simplify everything else about this wine. Short with oaky toffee and vanillins.
