Ever so slightly corked but nice nonetheless. Earth and plums.

Slightly oxidized and while the fruit is still intact, the wood is a little drying. Better with food.

Spot on ...pale ruby out to garnet rim, savory and herbal and VA just enough to give it that extra oomph. Red cherry, dried and sour, thyme/oregano, high acid medium + Tannin..long finish...paired with meatballs...

Higher acid, tasted really cool! Looked beautiful as well.

Edit: this was actually a rosso di montalcino but I can't change it

Medium garnet red with brick edges. Layered nose with earthy notes, tart red cherries, purple floral notes, a touch stinky and tobacco. Firm medium tannins (6.5/10), balanced acidity and medium bodied. Great palate with notes of dried cherries, earthy, and truffles. Red fruit beefed up with air. Dry and long finish. Drink till 2026.

Garnet red with bricking on the edges with a moderate intensity. Complex and layered nose starting off with some soft red cherries, damp leaves, earthy, tobacco, clay, savory and a little dirty. Fruit got a little more intense with air. Dark red cherries, earthy and mushrooms on the palate. Moderate tannins (6/10) with great acidity (6/10) and beautifully balanced. Medium plus body. Dry and covered in cherries in the long finish. Drank over a two hour period, only wish we had grabbed more than a bottle! Drink till 2026.

Wonderful wine. Black cherry, baking spice, fairly high acid. Decanting helped mellow things out quite a bit.
