The dude abides....and approves. Perfumed floral nose, sweet smooth tannins, leather, luscious red fruit and exceptional balance and length. Impressively subtle and inviting.

Delicious. So savory and umami right now. Amarone like nose and palate. Dried cherry, fig, plum. Wet leather, sweet spices, porcini and maitake mushroom, dried flowers, fennel seed, licorice root, tar. Super expressive and layered. Concentrated mid-palate. Elegant tannins with a rustic charm to them. Long finish. One of the best Sangiovese I've ever had. Out of magnum

Might have to take back everything I have said about Sangiovese.

My son's birthday year, so no wonder I'm blown away. Striking, mature aromatic pushing dried cherries and plums, beautifully framed by all integrated oak and that telltale Tuscan Galestro feeling. Long, graceful and utterly impressive peaking now-2020.

Give it some time, it rewards you with beautiful times of fruit and slate!

Out of a 6 liter, all showing a touch hot but otherwise the wine was beautiful

Delicious, complete and ready. Cherry and red berry scent, high acidity but silky smooth. Perfect now
