Tasted over dinner with winemaker. Lush style of Brunello but plenty of acid to balance. Worth finding

Boo!! Tastes like 10 lbs of barrique in a 5 pound botti - Sangiovese is barely recognizable - Montalcino is AWOL

Searing acidity and plenty of heft. Needs meat and air.

Needed to breath a bit, and then everyone loved it. Full flavor, but still smooth.
