Phenomenal, classic Nerello Mascalese. Singing at 11 years with lots of fruit still but nice leather, tobacco, moss notes. Feeling fresh and young still, it has a long way to go.

Juicy, earthy, knock your socks off leathery finish. How is a 2008 so cheap? No brainer.

Beguiling nose reminds me of spraypaint - but then reveals a dark, jammy cherry almost like marmelade, dark chocolate. Very interesting wine and cracking pairing with chicken tagine.

Like a bagful of dried cherries (that’s a good thing). Medium ruby in color but still light, with a wonderful balance of tartness and gravelly creaminess. A touch of allspice at the end reminded me of some Pinots from Sta. Rita Hills.
