Tightly wound and on the lean side with tart dark cherry and tomato leaf. On the palate a bit rustic but not overly heavy, with juicy cherry acidity and chewy tannins. This might evolve nicely as the fruit is slowly appearing after 3h decanting. Good with food.
Edit: 24h later this has mellowed with the tannins getting softer and a balsamic note supplementing the juicy cherry nicely. Keep & don’t open.

Very enjoyable wine. Light to medium body with cherry, raspberry, earthy tones, and a bit of tobacco. Well balanced acidity and tannins.

Great find. Organic. Sangiovese prugnolo. Everything good: acidity, fruit, length, finish, some heft. The bottle is 30% lighter, less glass!

Light. Pretty high acidity, too tart for my liking. Black cherry and strawberry on the nose. Smooth but not enough flavor for my liking. Definitely got better as it opened up.

Smooth and delicious, delicate tannins and a long finish. Ripe fruit and soft cherry.
