Great wine. Settled amazingly after 30 minutes in a decanter.

Drank this after an '03 Edizione Pennino was corked upon opening. Maybe the smell and the quick sip I took from it ruined my palate for the night. Casey and Dad enjoyed it immensely but I thought it seemed like it was winding down and was not particularly impressed. I tasted unpleasant bitterness in this wine, although that mellowed after 2-3 hours. I dunno take this one for what it's worth. My first impression was probably more accurate.
