Very dark purple for a 13 yo red. Loads of blackberry fruit. Tannins have softened. Fairly tart. Big, rich and long. Impressive.

Awesome wine! Sweet cherry fruit, firm tannins. Long finish. In the zone!

Kind of strange. Dark, extracted. Somewhat oxidized. A tad pruney. Tart. I wonder if this needed more sulfite to keep it more fresh.

A very good Montepulciano, that needs time, but it's worth It.

vigna di 50 anni a buona altitudine, probabilmente con delle ottime prerogative organolettiche devastate da un uso smodato del legno. decente appena aperto diventa imbevibili dopo 10 minuti che sta nel bicchiere e perde tutto il patrimonio olfattivo escluso il legno.
