A bit stubborn on day 1, but second half of bottle showing very well on day 2. Decant several hours!

Насыщенный аромат с тонами замши, сушеной черники, черемухи. Высокая кислотность, плотные танины, держать. 16/20 (89/100)

Wonderful bouquet, smooth and light. Goes great with a Tuscan-style Italian meal.

Manure/fertilizer, wood and cherry on the nose. Mild Brett, and strong woody tannins, a little rough. Past its prime. EDIT: tasted again an hour later, all of the sharp one dimensional characteristics blew off and it's quite enjoyable now. 👍

2009 vintage barely visible at bottom... Lovely expression of Sangiovese. Wild fruit and flowers: cherry, strawberry, raspberry, and violet flavors, all encapsulated in a humidifier full of premium cigars. Requires 30-45 minutes of aeration.
