Rich, complex, and deep, and in this tasting balanced and velvety - none of the heat and overt muscularity I often taste in the Martinelli big boys. Plenty of ripe (but not over-ripe) fruit fills the mouth, with a melange of dark berries, plums, Asian spices, and the usual Martinelli earthy/savory edge. The 16.4% alcohol is nicely subsumed in the texture of this beautiful Zin. - HK 2018-05-13
