Really well balanced black fruits, subdued acids and little oak. You can tell this was made from a younger generation, wanting the wine to speak for itself without too much manipulation. Thanks to the friends who brought it from the vineyard in Italy,.

2011 peaking right now. Leathery, floral, resin-y funkiness with some dark fruits, tons of spices, tobacco, and chocolate. Full bodied and tannic with a long finish and an acidic through line. (Like balsamic vinegar) It’s bold, but not disjointed. It’s fun. — 21 days ago
Tart cherry pith, orange peel, dried herbs. On the palate: pencil shavings sandalwood, and smoke. Elevated rustic but fine grained tannins balanced by elevated acidity. 15% abv well balanced. — 5 days ago
Will be on the lookout for more of this one. Excellent QPR. Great food wine. — a month ago
Amazing. Still so tannic, but fresh, potent, with port aroma and chewy, fruit forward, dense black cherry — 17 days ago
