Was gifted this by a guest earlier and what a gift! Muscular nose, with leather and tobacco and dried herbs. Leathery on the palate, with some tart plums plums and ash on the long, long finish. I find a lot of Italian wines to be very acidic but this is super well balanced. The finish lasts for a good long time. Worth it.

An abundance of tobacco, rich black fruit, baking spice, and silky tannins.

I've always loved this wine & the 2010 does not disappoint. Needs a bit of decanting to open up but when it does it's awesome! Will definitely age well & only get better with time.

Please wait a good portion of time before even thinking opening up this bottle

Unbalanced, good but not sure when I'll see the price tag...

Sweat nose, making me imagine it has already been ready. But initially still feeling lots of tanning. More than one hour, very smooth and I am sure that it is quite higher level than 3rd one. Of course, 2010. 8 year's vintage. Excellent! @1750, Wineplus - , 180430-180615

Opened up beautifully. Smooth as silk. Brooding and earthy. Delicious!
