Tobacco, eucalyptus, and vanilla on the nose with lovely savory fig and a metallic or wrought iron mineral quality in the mouth. The acidity is quite high (med ++) and the tannins are grippy. As it keeps opening it gets even more interesting. I imagine this will age for quite some time more!

Very tight on open, but with air and coming to room temp this opened up beautifully. Great combination of high floral notes and tarry bass notes. Delicious, complex and outstanding.

Cherry and light camphor on the nose, it opens like a mature burgundy, Chambolle Musigny to be precise. I absolutely love this kind of flower/mature black fruit. On the palate, a bit tired, there is something missing in the mid-palate but I'm being bitchy about it.... A brilliant wine from a vintage that is really not up to the hype IMHO.

Maybe prefer 2007 Pianrosso to this Riserva, but very close. A beautiful mouthfeel and smoothness.

Good concentration and typicty of the grape variety and the region. An excellent example of well-balanced fruit, acidity, body and tannins for those who are experiencing this type of wines of the first time

Dark garnet. Barely translucent. In the nose, notes of black cherries, anise, mocha, menthol and cedar. Chewy in the mouth, with good balance of rich fruit and somewhat resolved tannins. Good finish.

Going Italian, but n a big way! 2004, excellent vintage. Brighter red fruit, exquisite tannins, floral notes and clove linger in the pallet. Yum!

Closed but lovely. Rich but needing 2 to 3 hours of air time very nice elements.
