Put the 2013 vintage up against the 2014 Tignanello... and it almost won. Big and bold, lots of complexity... lots of layers. What an amazing wine, considering it's the secondary wine from this producer. I'd rather drink lucente than tig.

Very drinkable, classic Tuscan. Good idea to let this one breathe before imbibing. Nice notes of cherry and a little spice.

Simple black fruits with a mild lift of acidity and very soft oak which gives the impressions of mainly used oak for a solid duration. Easy drinking without and flaws or really firm structure.

Needs time. Super ripe and sweet black fruit in the front and then a swift and immediate transfer into long, lingering tannins.

Our house red for the past few months. Sorry to see the last bottle go.

This wine reminds me of why I like most Supertuscans with a little age. Dense and smooth with black fruits and complexity of aromas and palate. Great to be in Rome where these aged beauties are relatively easy to find.

Stewed plums, cherries, vanilla, red currants. A bit oxidized, probably open too long.
