Already quite mature. Soft,
sweetly aromatic and feminine. Damp roses, blood orange, wet concrete, strawberry rhubarb pie in graham cracker crust. Supple tannins, persistent acidity. Incredible lifted floral perfume and elegance.

All bass, no treble. Lacking high-toned and effusive aromatics but compensating in it’s depth and richness. Silkier tannins for Monforte, elegant and present. Very savory and dark, weighty. Could argue that it needs more time to come together but that dark fruit is appealing now. Played well is mushroom braised short ribs and polenta.

Some aged Barolo. Less fruit as expected. Tar, tobacco, leather, strawberry, raspberry. Buon!

60+ yr old vines estate in Bussia, growing in sandy clay, southward facing, 3800 plants per hectare, fermented in large botti, wood aged 60% botti, 40% barrique. Texture vastly detailed, continuously improving.

Started off quite shy. Still opening, in decanter, 2hrs later. Not crazy about the tinge of brett. Still, it has a bad case of blah. Stay tuned.
