This wine definitely needs a few years to soften the firm tannins. An impressively structured wine that has clear pedigree. Complex and evolving through its long finish. definitely recommended

Plum, cocoa powder, black currant, wild herbs, cedar, structure. Nose is intoxicating. A very refined version of Bordeaux from Italy. Amazing.

For a wine so young, this opens up quite well. Dark plum, blackberry and bitter dark chocolate. Ripe, modern and polished.

Incredibly powerful, jammy, smooth yet a handsome amount of tannins. INCREDIBLE!

This seems to taste better the larger the sip I take. Dangerously delicious...

Open early. Dark fruits and vanilla. Got trace amounts of green pepper in its evolution in the glass.
