Vintage 2015 / wine from #umbria central #italy with the unusual blend of #sangiovese #sagrantino and #merlot (on barrel). It was quite harsh in bitters/aftertaste immediately after opening, tannins also. But when it had aeration the wine softened and even shows frivolousness 🙃 Beautiful strawberries in smell, smooth taste. I liked this transformation. Awesome PRQ. I presume it will even gets better within a few years.

Supermarket blend. Why did the Italians accept mademoiselle Merlot., a northerly migrant, to join their terroir? Perfect to get drunk in 3 glasses. That's why it tastes better after "some aeration" time.
