2010 vintage. Tre Tine. Medium ruby hue. Nose is quite tight and reticent at first. After an hour of decanting, the beauty of this wine shines through. Perfumed, black fruits and spices with hints of wood shavings. Still very youthful without tertiary aromas. Vibrant. On the palate, very bright acidity creates an angular wine with some muscular definition. Medium minus body. Alcohol feels more 12.5% than the 14% on the bottle. Tannins are Fine and ripe. Concentration is deep but refined and not over powering - balanced. Finish is fairly long. Surprisingly light and elegant wine that nonetheless has a powerful underbelly. This wine has a very long journey ahead of it. Drink now until 2035+.
