Dark ruby in color with a wide reddish rim.

Nice nose of red currants, cherries, blueberries, vanilla, licorice, oak, cloves, spices, dark chocolates, wet leaves, earth, leather, light vinaigrette and peppercorn.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate with dark cherries, sweet raspberries, tobacco leaf, spices, wood, vanilla, vegetables, vinaigrette, bitter herbs, forest floor, river rocks, leather, pencil lead, peppercorn and earth.

Long tangy finish with grippy tannins and tart cherries.

This is a nice surprise. This 9 year old Tuscan is still young and austere. Needs 5 years to mature properly.

Needs 2 hours to open up properly and show the big tannins.

Still unbalanced, but already enjoyable and better with food. I paired it with cheeses and light appetizers.

Compact, concentrated nose. Not that much complex. From mid-palate onwards woody notes are dominating leading towards a dry finish.
