Flavorful with juicy black cherries - nice acidity and tannins to balance out. Not very harsh and great with food.

This Flacc is OTT. Bordeaux gestalt with a nose of Tuscany. Whiffs of thyme and sage, so many secondary aromatics over cedar and old, dry earth. Smooth as silk, brick-edged and tasting of red clay and old cherrywood. Needed only 20 mins in decanter to open wide. Drink up.

Sweet blackcurrant, black cherries and spices and a bit smoky on the nose. Spicy on the palate with acidity and tannins, ripe sweet black cherries and blackcurrant. A bit of smoke at the finish.

Structure is impeccable! So well balanced! Medium mouthfeel with huge flavor!

I’ve had this wine at least a dozen times but it wasn’t showing optimally tonight. It may be descending down the other side of the hill. Fruit, structure and weight were all less than expected.

After 30 minutes in a decanter it opened wide!! Very balanced with great acid. Paired beautifully with beef carpaccio fontuda.

Aged nose of sour cherry-drenched stems, dusty red fruit. This has cellared beautifully, Margaux-like but for the unmistakable dark red cherry and leather, lifted and layered, intense but restrained. Pure. Really needed 45 mins to sort out in decanter. Sublime, peaking but will sustain for a while.
