I've had 6 bottles of this. 1 was absurdly reduced, but was superb on the 3rd day. The other 5 were ethereal. Lasted for days, or sometimes, didn't last for an hour. Stunning example of what Sangiovese can be when its not over-cropped, over-ripe and over-oaked. I don't like most Sangiovese, it's no secret. Something about the creamy yogurt thing I get, and the opinion I have that Tuscany is the Napa of Italy. But this wine is real, raw, alive, unique. No oak. No additives. No bullshit. I love it. Umbrian Sangiovese fermented and aged in concrete. It changes and breathes. There's not much else like it.

A real treat. And kinda funny that my first wine in Paris was Italian.

Incredibly reductive right now. Still, there's some seriously refreshing tart cherry fruit in there. Looking forward to checking in on this guy over the next few days.

Needs a lot of time to evolve after opened. I thought it peaked on day three. Definitely don't judge it right after the cork has been popped.
