Very dark Brunello. Just breathtaking sour cherry and savory earth notes mixed with leather and liquorice. Still young. Big structure and dusty tannin. Super long finish and cannot resist another pour. Impressive.

This is without question the best wine I’ve had in 2018. Absolutely phenomenal purity, elegant sweet plum and cassis, silky and profound. Young but just amazingly all there already.

07' Was a baby. I had this open for 6+ hours. Absolutely loved it. Time will help this wine immensely.

Translucent dark ruby core slight brick outer hue. The nose has a good intensity with dried floral and fruit notes with subtle barnyard. The palate is balanced with integrated tannins. Body is medium to full and the finish adds to the complexity.

Toast, completely over the hill and not in a good way.
