Stellar Sangiovese drinking perfectly at peak. Rolling with 30 minutes of air. Dried red fruit, herbs, sarsaparilla, orange peel, saddle leather, tobacco leaf. Beautiful, smooth, and lengthy on the palate.
Just a bit boozy on the finish.

Delicious Brunello that goes beautifully with everything. Can't go wrong: good producer, exceptional vintage, nice bit of age on it. The bottle showed beautifully and opened up nicely over two hours or so. Could have done with even more air maybe.

Post Memorial Day ass-kicking celebration. Very elegant and structured. Could have used another 10 years but delicious. Planning my next trip back to visit the vineyard!!

A favourite from Montalcino. Determinedly old-fashioned and biodynamic. Closed at first, then Brett, before becoming fruitier and more expressive.

What is this? A touch stewed and no real structure. :-/
