2013 vintage, their comeback year and truly marvelous. Probably too soon. Tight tannins, takes a lot of time to open, but a wonderful bouquet right from the opening so go figure. In most ways a textbook montepulciano, in a good way. Fruit at the front gives way to more complexity. Color is fading from ruby to a more mature wine. Still, needs more time. If you have a 2013 in a good place, be more patient. Drink maybe 2023? Could go longer
