This is a great wine. Well balanced and enjoyable by itself or with food. Showing great complexity and a great mouthfeel. This is a wine that you want to talk about while drinking.
Needs 2 hours to open up a properly. This 10 year old still has many years in it, and it is beginning to drink nicely now. Tasty and delicious.

Having a fantastic meal on the Lido island of Venice. The Som recommended this wine. I’m in heaven on all fronts. A little green pepper and dark fruit on the nose. Tastes of dark fruits and mint. Smooth and easy. Oh and the potato flan is freakin fantastic! — 21 days ago
This wine goes as far as Valpolicella can go without being Amarone (that’s a flavor AND cost assessment). Beautifully priced and made, the seriousness and quality is there to pair with great hearty fare. Still plenty of finesse, with some delicacy on the nose, and a palate that never takes over. — 4 days ago
Delicious! One of my favorites. Big, bold, well balanced. Huge alcohol content (17%!) which is surprisingly not the first thing you notice. — a month ago
