I bought this affordable (about 9 €) bottle at Le volpi e l'uva a couple of weeks ago and we opened it last night as an aperitif. I had tasted it at the enoteca and thought it would be something smooth enough to drink by itself (compared to the rest of my collection of mostly Sangiovese based wines).

This is a newer wine from vines planted in 2000 and is definitely a commercial product (60,000 bottles) and made to drink. The wine does not go into wood at all. My take:

The nose is slightly sweet and jammy. Tasting it there are a lot of dark red fruits, with hints of raisin and prunes. A very supple, tongue coating mouth feel, smooth on the mid-palate and the finish. It is a sort of heavy, almost syrupy wine - but was great to drink alone and could pair with many different foods.

If you are a fan of this grape I have a feeling this is a very good example, especially at this price. On the web (with many more details about the production, food pairings, etc.) at:
