Nose:Decaying rose petal, tar, earth. In the glass, the entry is round, with a spicy bite on the finish. The fruit is subsided to the body on this one, with the wine’s structure needing a few more years to calm down to match the remaining fruit.

Much improved from 8 months ago but ideally needs more time to integrate further.
Traditional style. Cherry, leather, a bit of earth, and subtle floral flavors.
Drank with pork milanese and risotto. Very good!

Hard to beat for $13 and very good but that being said I was a bit disappointed since I expected more from a gran selezione. Tastes more like a super Tuscan than a baby brunello.
But like I said it is still very good
