Delicious and ready to drink this wine is at it peak and all the parts fall in place together, lovely appealing nose, well structured round body with lovely acidity and well integrated tannins, great fruit and earthy notes and a long pleasant elegant finish. My score 90, drink to 2020

Delicious layers of plums, dark cherries, leather, and baking spices. Great balance of soft acidity and smooth tannins.

Drinking beautifully-expansive layers of dark fruits with anise, clove, spice, floral notes, long lingering finish

Full bodied, screams cherries on the nose and follows closely with taste. To say I love it would be an understatement. Monster of a wine.

Mint, leather, mulberry, more astringency and tart fruit acid compared to the Masseto, despite three years of extra age.
