Aromatic. Red fruits and potpourri. Needs time to flaunt, but still never really shines.

Big potpourri nose, needed some time to open to show its red fruits. The texture and mouthfeel never found a direction, not bad but probably not worth the $50 tag

Достаточно светлое. Рябина, сушеная вишня, кизил, брусника, клюква. Ягодно, не тяжело, чуть спиртуозно. 16/20 (89/100)

Very drinkable now. It's a modern style Brunello but pays its respects to tradition with enough of an earthy backbone. Should be very enjoyable

Aromas of blackberry and a hint of lilac, palate cleansing acidity, seems a little past it’s prime.
