Terrific wine. Insane freshness. Nose of tobacco, cassis, dark cherry fruit, really dark yet vibrant. Complex earth toned as well. Smells like a very good Bordeaux. Terrific sweet fruit and energy. So clean and pure. Velvety and juicy tannins. A huge mouthful.

So this is totally not the kind of wine i normally drink. Super Tuscan but from Montalcino. Big big blackberry fruits. Spice. Some richness. Blackberry candy a bit in the nose but in a good way. As it opens that turns to sick awesome licorice Palate soaking from the fruit. Like a basket of concentrated blackberries exploded in your mouth. Gorgeous nuclear spice all over. Delicious but not exactly elegant. But it’s insanely juicy and fresh despite the 7 years and density. Color is black as night. I’d take this over almost every blingy bolgheri I’ve had at 2-4 times the price. Maybe all of them. Think about it. A super Tuscan from the sexiest terroir in Tuscany.

This is 7 years old and has some sediment. A careful decant is strongly recommended.

This needs 60-90 minutes to optimize.
