From one of the oldest producers of vino nobile, this amazing 2013 gattavecchi offers everything is right with this wine leaving every defect out of the door. The color is a deep, brilliant dark ruby, charming and foretell of the pleasures this product can offer. Ripe plum and raspberry are dominant, with delicate touch of age in the form of leather and mild spices. A touch of vanilla complete this wonderful palette of flavours. High, vibrant acidity, perfectly matched by powerful green tannins and a deep alcol flow. Everything is perfectly balanced, leaving a clean and memorable palate. If we want to find a mistake, the aftertaste is not as durable as I would have wished. But at this price tag, there are few matches. Wonderful with boar, my perfect match is a traditional Tuscan pasta, pici with ragu. 5 years is its top maturation age, drink it now or regret it forever.

Just coming into its drinking window with notes of chocolate, damp earth, and lush fruit. Enough acid to foretell a great future for this St. Exupery. If you have, I would hold, it's only going to get better. — 5 years ago
