High-tones red fruit still coming through, supported by some secondary earthy/vegetal notes

Near perfection. A brilliant wine in its prime, aged beautifully with plenty of lively fruit notes, some wood, some cherry, some leather, with nicely dissolved tannins. This is a monster.

A muscular wine to be sure but with so much elegance and finesse you can't help but appreciate the nuance. To me this wine is the epitome of Bolgheri and I prefer it far more than Sassicaia. A bold chewy soil, gravel and fruit driven treat that reminds me of Pape Clement in its Graves flavor profile and density. Ready now on pop but gathers momentum in the glass.

Axel's first vintage. At a "cool vintage" tasting. Cool meaning low temp.

Decanted for 2 hours and needed more. Big, rich, youthful, and very tasty

Balanced, red fruits, dark baked earth, a hint of leather.
