Wow. From Maggie Harrison at Antica Terra, this is one of the best ones I’ve had from that winery. It doesn’t quite have the depth and complexity of her top-end wines (e.g., Cerras)…but it is also spectacular at this young of an age (as opposed to the higher end ones, which I think need several years in bottle before they really start to sing). In this regard, this wine is kind of like an off-scale Rosso di Montalcino that you enjoy while you wait for the brunellos to come of age. This wine was fantastic. Amazing fruit, perfect balance, and expanded beautifully on the palate. Just terrific.
