Powerhouse. A Tuscan wine to seek out. Would be a great intro for the Cali drinker. Savory and complex with oak.

Definitely not lacking, but difficult to justify the price tag, at least for the 2014. Getting a medium-full body, but soft and smooth. It's balanced well but is missing the punch that would indicate aging ability and stability. Red to dark fruits with fig, plum, and jam. Some leather and tobacco, but I expected a bit more.

Loved it. Best of the second flight blind of #supertuscan #bolgheri wines #italy is fun and serious once in a while. This is in my opinion a very ugly label for an honest, expressive solid wine. Outstanding

I’m not the best at predicting how wine ages, but this strikes me as a wine with a long thrilling life ahead of it. Aggressive tannins shape an undercurrent of dark plum and wild dark berry fruit. Heavy chalky notes. Tightly wound with great potential energy underneath dryingtannins that produce pith-like flavors (blood orange pith?). Not close to ready yet

2009 is growing. My wife and I bought a case. She loves it and I can't argue. Blueberry muffins on the nose. As she opens up (yes oh so feminine) bright acidity and soft tannin surprised me.

loads of juicy dark fruits woven with baking & exotic spices ~ a finish of dried herbs and a hint of dark minerals
