Beautiful! Floral, rose petals, dried black cherry, touch of balsamic. Such a pretty wine. Tannins add structure, balanced acidity

So good. Herbal, balsam, tar and red fruits. Lovely acid. Tannins there but lacking refinement. Not as fleshy as some 11s, thoroughly enjoyed.

2011 Acclivi. Blend of his best grapes. Great balance. Good acidity with nice fruit at the nose. Top.!

Drank blind, but nose was obvious give away that it's a burlotto acclivi. Drinking nicely but didn't have the body to hold over 3 hours dinner as fruit started to dissipate by then. Very fine tannins typical of 2011 vintage. Will keep my other bottle for another 5 years before revisiting.

Leathery, low acid, velvety, with a long finish. Enough of trying to discern the flavor profile: Definitely delicious!!
