Strong sharp almost acrylic smell followed by rich fruity aroma, plumb - oak - layered rich and thick. Later on almost like expensive tea with a complex and fragrant bouquet .
Taste is sharp at first with stringent dry tannic. Powerful and strong. Followed by fruit. Plumb, cherry, stone fruit. Crisp and refreshing. Cuts though the fat like a knife. And ends with a bitter sweetness that makes you want to take another sip.
Not as amazing as I remembered back in 2017 in Montepulciano. But good in its own way. Softened much more the 2nd day. Maybe I should decant for 5hrs next time. — a month ago
Leather. Smoke. Tobacco.
All of the things that I love about a wine.
However! (And it’s a big however)… this needs another 5 years.

Dry. Earthy. Big flavor but not overpowering. Touch of sweetness. Right up my alley.
