Gulpable and delicious, especially with food. It could have rested a few more years.

This was great. Structurally the wine is ready to drink but it has the frame to keep going. Quintessential Italy in character. Meaty, leathery, savory, and lots of umami tones backed by dried and sour dark fruit. Tannins are on the earthy side, fine, and add so much to the textural experience reminiscent of fine Nebbiolo. All the dark and savory elements are bound by balanced acid that drives the wine forward.

Exotic spice, perfume and sweet wild flowers. Black fruit. M acid and body. M+ tannin. A tiny bit bitter. Earth and black fruit. Even with the 2006 vintage this wine needs a little time. But it's still balanced and would be great with food.
