One of my best food pairings of the year.
A friend gifted me several handfuls of pomodori di vesvuvio, tiny plum tomatoes grown on Mt. Vesuvius. They were so intense and unlike any tomato I've ever smelled or eaten before. I made a sauce of olive oil packed tuna with onion, pine nuts and capers saucing extra thick fettucione.
The synergy and harmony between food and wine made descriptions unnecessary.

Tight as hell on opening. 2 hours in the decanter really let this shine, esp with rich meats. Will go another 10 easy

2006. Brooding, bass heavy, savory, and with enough dark fruit to keep it friendly.

Almost perfect. Savory, sappy, herbal notes. Graphite and earth. Tannins have softened and were in nice balance. Complex. Long finish. Excellent with fresh tomato galette.

Big, tart, tannic, graphite, tar. Bordeaux like fruits and savory elements. Kind of rich and austere at the same time. Interesting, but tannins and acidity overshadow the fruit.
