Another beauty. Pretty amazing night. Still has many many years ahead of it.

Great color. Great complexity with red and black fruit aromas and a him of spices and balsamic. Little bit tannic and very long finish.

A total baby. A really expressive inviting gravel, graphite, ripe red cherry bouquet and nice texture but then just all tannin after that. This certainly could have performed better if given some time in the decanter. Hold.

Drinking beautifully. Needed time to open up in the glass but by the end of the meal it really came through.

Distant third when trying with Solaia and Sassicaia all 2009's at same time. I give it a strong 94+ . On opening it needed time, yes very Bordeaux like a good Pauillac ! After 45 minutes of breathing it began to have that classic Tuscan Flavors. Rich Round loaded with black fruits. Really good! Thanks Henry for bringing this great wine to Monday night dinner! Bravo

Complex and elegant. Layers of red cherry, raspberry, along with chocolate, smoke, and earth. Long finish.

Beautiful spice and subtle bell pepper nose. Tannins on the finish are nice and round
