This was my first bottle i tasted from Stella and i remember comparing it to an Echezeaux, but it has gone nwxt level up in body and complexity
I know it's a Rosso, but it feels like a huge Brunello with extra power.
Rasperry, leather, balsamic and licorice which are what you look for in a Brunello..plus wild strawberries, white plums, blood orange and nectarines...black truffle, cola, bay leaves, cardamom and soy sauce..and more trust me...in the mouth it's a refined sangiovese grosso vibrant, in tension and super enjoyable.
Had a little bruise on the label and didn't make it to the auction...
Sublime..made me so happy
At peak and perhaps also for many more years too — 11 days ago
Quite fascinating starting from a bright ruby color
Still quite simple nose but intense, pure intensity
Something between a raspberry and a darker currant
Had this distinctive balsamic, reminded me of a liquorishy mint
Mouthful is velvet and silk, top stuff
Aftertaste divine and long

Ripe berries, salt, cheeky tannins. Yum — 11 days ago
Some raisin with red fruits. Mild tannins and some chocolate. Drank at a restaurant without decanting and it was delicious — 2 months ago
Unbelievable. I’m not worthy. — 3 years ago
A remarkably elegant wine that only resembles itself. The balance is outstanding!!
Fresh, slightly tannic still smooth and never-ending.
It completely cleanse your mouth with both freshness and tannin..what a tannin..
Second to very few others in its category...if second — a month ago
