Animal, leather, dried cherry, violets, sandalwood and black pepper. Very savory and rustic at first, with air it really transformed, showing the elegant and polished side this wine has. This had a richness to it that I found really appealing, a heftier expression of CC, vintage perhaps? Only regret was not enjoying this with a piece of lamb/beef 😭

One of the best & complex wine you could find around $40. Also kept evolving in the glass. Love this as always.

May sound weird but definite play dough on the nose, sangiovese cherry comes through at first taste, then leads into a chalky mid palate that settles into firm tannins, a few years left on this one. Very enjoyable now can't wait to try in 5 years!🍷👍

This is almost completely shutdown. Needs 4-5 years to start drinking. Reminds me of a baby Pergole Torte.

Deep and intense with all intensity of a warm year. Brunello fans should look into this wine
