Initially quite nice, but shut down behind a wall of tannin after an hour or so. I’ll try to keep away from my remaining bottle for 20 years or so. — a month ago
A very enjoyable red wine from Italy.
Showing black and red fruits with earth, vanilla, oak, licorice, spices, coffee, pencil lead, earth, vegetables and peppercorn.
Dry and bold with medium plus acidity and long legs and teeth staining color.
Still showing enough acidity to age for many years.
Very enjoyable by itself or with food.
Needs an hour to open up properly, but good right out of the bottle.
15% alcohol by volume.

Dark and opaque. Gave it 5 hours of air in a decanter before touching it and it blossomed. Really nice nose. Notes of roses, black fruit, anise, wet cedar wood and some menthol. Rich and silky in the mouth. Great texture with a long finish. Paired well with a boar ragu pasta dish 8 hours after opening. In a peak drinking window but give it its needed air in a decanter first! — a month ago
