ITEM 8093010 - Removed from a professional wine storage facility
Aromas of blackberry, stone, slate, oyster shell and truffle, turning to a full body with soft, velvety tannins and a long, long finish. This goes on for minutes on the palate. A savory, gorgeous wine.
Full of tension and energy...beautiful wine... The fruit nuances are layered and plentiful with loads of cherry, cassis and blackberry to keep your interest. The tannins are smooth and ripe with sweet overtones. The wine offers good complexity and definition.
An elegant version, with vibrant acidity and firm, assertive tannins underneath the cherry, strawberry and spice flavors. Tobacco and underbrush notes emerge as this reveals a touch of heat on the finish.
...juicy, succulent wine... Sweet red cherry, raspberry, spice and floral notes lift from the glass. Racy and open-knit...expressive.
... Mellow, fully resolved nose with considerable tertiary aromas. Lift and freshness on the palate with just a whiff of charred tarmacadam on the nose. Admirable Sangiovese refreshment overlaid with southern Tuscan heat. Very slight dustiness on the end and still evidence of some fine tannins.
