Top Notes For
Ceccherini Cristiano

This wine was shamelessly young
I could not absorb this information
I tasted it 10 years ago and I thought it was good and fairly holding up; now, this is my second bottle of the month, the other wasn't perfect, but this one, mamma mia, had a freshness that you might find in a good sangiovese. This bottle could have laid down for another 10 years easily.
Maybe not super long aftertaste, but the flavors and scents are ever changing and never ending.
To buy again and keep, crossing your fingers that you put your hands on a perfect bottle like this one.
Yes, it is 1971.

Not the best bottle, actually we also discussed it might have been corked slightly, but altogether the wine went down well and we are talking a bit of age on this bottle too
Soo, in the end I am a little happy, not extremely, but a little. One more bottle to go

Great character, Shiraz that talks Coonawarra slang, tobacco, nutmeg, classic terra rossa minerality, leather, walnuts and little πŸ’ cherries under spirit.
Still quite enjoyable,πŸ‘.

Had it 21/4/2010.
Good colour still varying from ruby to orange on the edge.
Raspberry, blood orange, cigars box, liquorice, marine somehow, seaweed, Asian spices, ginger, star anise, white pepper.
Iron, tea leaves.
Very elegant mouth, solved tannin, soft, but great freshness that supports the wine. Super persistent πŸŽΌπŸ‘πŸ‘
Fantastic expression of Coonawarra terroir. It wouldn't decay soon either.

Lovely old bottle; still rich and sweet with some lovely Christmas cake-like fruit poking through - 1971

Eucalyptus, shoe polish on the nose. Macerated blueberries and smoked tea palate.
