Nose has smoked & partially-dried plum, sliced cherries dredged in cocoa powder, faint baking spice, mashed black cherries, old cigar box and dried blackberries.
Palate has grilled plum, savory herbs, over-ripe blackberry, bittersweet chocolate chips, faint fire-roasted tomato and raspberry puree.
Decanted +3H, needs lots more time to uncoil. Medium to heavy tannins with a drying palate texture similar to eating a spoonful of cocoa powder, dry + chocolatey. A wall of tannins, if drinking this before 2026, decant at least 8-12H. — 4 days ago
The humble vino Rosso. The 2019 is a huge winner. Delicious and vibrant.
Unbelievable value. I love this simple happy wine. — 4 days ago
Just in a fantastic place. Redolent of roses, oolong tea, minerals and earth. Blackberries on the palate. Lovely integration and fine tannins. Super lithe. Very much enjoyed it. — 2 days ago

Every grape in this blend is doing its job. The color is outstanding. The Sagrantino gives the Sangio significantly more backbone without overpowering the flavor and dominating the blend. The Montepulciano gives you a full finish. I have another bottle of this, which I am thrilled about. This is way up there, possibly the best wine I’ve drunk in 2020. Paolo Bea and Enzo Pontodi are two of the greatest wine makers in my version of Italy. — 4 days ago
four days open brings glycerin lollipop, pineapple curds, baked orange, cinnamon raisin toast, florid sunset hues, and a spice cloud at the very bottom. Umph. — 3 days ago
