Powerful nose of leather, rose, violet, blackberry, black cherry carrying through to a similar palate with notes of graphite and mushroom. Still a ways to go with plenty of fruit concentration and grippy tannin. Better with food but a delight as always

Had it December 2011.
At its peak, good fruit, good expression of Montalcino Sangiovese in a vintage that remains difficult.
Enjoyable, but not unforgettable.

Firmer in structure and texture, showing a lot of complexity and nuance from the single site terroir.
