...a benchmark for the whole Italian winemaking world. It is no just a technical champ... but a giant in flavor & authenticity, developed over spicy, earthy sensations with hugely expressive fruit and a masterly palate in weight and grip,.
Super-expressive aromatics soar out of the glass as the 2010 shows off its personality. Sweet herbs, tobacco, licorice, mocha and tar wrap around a core of intense dark fruit. Racy, powerful and majestic, the 2010 is a total stunner.
...a truly outstanding wine that leaves a lasting memory for those who are lucky enough to enjoy it... absolutely seamless-seamless-seamless (yes, it's worth repeating 3 times) integration of its many moving parts... profoundly impressive.
A wine with a wonderful depth of berry, chocolate and hazelnut character. Full-bodied with velvety tannins and a round, delicious finish. Fruit-forward and exuberant:
A muscular, impenetrable red, with tightly wound tannins guiding the black cherry, plum, herb, soy and oak spice flavors.
Deep crimson, it is beautifully fresh and clean with a little tobacco leaf lift on the nose. There's nothing flashy or effortful about this, just beautiful balance and medium weight fruit...overall it is luscious...
