The nose was gorgeous and intense with dusty sweet minerality giving way to crushed cherry and raspberry. Classic dried florals and leather tones developed over time, along with hints of cinnamon, and clove. On the palate, I found a silky-soft expression with a mix of seductive red berry fruits and sweet herbs that coated the senses, yet maintained a juicy and vibrant core through brisk acidity. Hints of fine tannin lasted into the finish, along with dried strawberry and a twang of fresh sweet herbs. This is beautiful.

The tannins are SUPER firm. Needs a decant and some food. Great earthy notes.

Solid. Robust purple/ruby color. Nose of tart blackberries and that unmistakable Tuscan dried fruit leather. Not so powerful as to overwhelm a simple pasta with tomato and garlic for lunch with out of town friends.

No mistake where this hallmark traditional bottling comes from. Only one place: Tuscany. Sour, dry cherry fruit with cedar, bay leaf and thyme. Classic and terrific. Requires tomato sauce acid and meat to balance out.
