One of the best in the world. Tastes like Sangiovese should.

Deep ruby color. Sour cherries, tea leaves, cocoa, raspberry. Dark berry notes and a long finish.

Peppery, sour cherry, a hint of plum and leather. A nice bitter touch. A bit dilute and one dimensional but a decent food wine.

A favorite of Asimov from the NYT. Yes some sour cherries tea leaves etc. but at least today disappointing. Other vintages of this wine blew me a way this one is dull. Perhaps closed? I will review this over the next 2 days may be I had a bad day? If it does not change that's it a low rating!
