Lots of cedar on the nose, a little tight right now. The tannins are well integrated and fine. The back palate shows off some leather and red fruits.

A very refined approach, unlike anything I've tasted from Italy. @poderesapaio #Bolgheri

Powerful, well balanced blend. Soft tannins, nice overall integrated flavor.

2012 vintage
Чёрная смородина, черника, ежевика, перец, тертая листва, ранние намеки на кожу. Танины яркие, но в меру укрощенные; плотная фруктовость поддерживается упругой кислотностью, легкий жар на финише. Ещё молодо, чересчур напористо, предсказуемо и чуть поверхностно, но не так уж плохо сбалансировано.
