Very deep inky ruby, almost atypically so for this wine. Floral and almost opulent on the nose and in the mouth, boasting faded flowers, sweet cherry, blueberry nectar and sweet spice nuances. Finishes very smooth, long and floral with lingering hints of coffee. A very clean, well-balanced Vajo Armaron, but showcasing less of this wine’s usual Molinara and cherry wood features. At Serego Alighieri, they are fortunate to grow an especially high quality biotype of Molinara (the official name of which is in fact Molinara Serego Alighieri) that always adds a lovely note of spice and salt to this wine, but I don’t find much of either in this powerful, brooding 2011. (15.5% alcohol)
