This explosive nose lifts from the glass with intriguing aromas of sweet tobacco, cayenne and guajillo pepper, graphite and cedar, violets and dried rose petal. The palate is a continuation of the nose with Italian plum, bakers chocolate, black pepper and a prominent spice component leading to fine grain tannins and a long luxurious finish.

Wine EnthusiastThis bottling occupies the middle step between Ponzi's Tavola and reserve-level Pinots. The exceptional 2012 vintage delivers a wine with unusual concentration for its price. It presents a refreshing mix of briary berry, mineral, hints of chive, pepper, chocolaty barrel notes and a suggestion of yeast, and is finished with fine-grain tannins.
