If I could I would give it a 9.35. This is the 4th bottle I have over several years and it keeps on evolving in a positive way. Nose is terrific and fruit, acidity and tannins are melting together. I still have 2 so probably the last one will be at peak 🤞 — 11 days ago
Nose jumps out of the glass. Ripe red cherries, plum and lots of spice. Slightly roasted as well. But not dominant and might blow off. Palate is just a massive blockbuster of a Brunello. Big and bruising with luscious, high acid cherry fruit. Complex but also a clipped finish and big tannins. But this is balanced. Just needs air. Fruit is sweet and massive. There is nothing subtle here. Really fresh and energetic. For what it is it’s very nice but it’s something I’m not sure I want to drink beyond once a year. Very long. Maybe my score goes up with air.
Narrator: my score went down with air. Became more tannic and nose got more roasted. 9.4 to 9.2. — 9 days ago
Dark and brooding with deep flavor, dark cherry, cedar, leather, and tobacco. Good freshness and gentle grip.
It came out of the bottle with sharp edges and harsh tannins, but really came together and drank beautifully after a 1.5 hour decant. — 9 days ago
Amazing sangiovese. Great qpr. Needs some air but once it opens is quite fresh. — 7 days ago
