Whilst it's drinking nicely now, even after a couple of hours letting it breathe you can tell that it's still very tight and restrained, with a tannic backbone that needs a few more years to relax and show its true self. Which I'm sure will be a very lovely self.
I wa delighted to spot on of my favourite Italian red wines.
I placed my order and it arrived without any hassle at all!
Great job, fabulous wine too!
Red brick colour indicating maturity, but might develop further. Firm backbone, but no harsh tannins. Dark fruit flavours, some savoury tones, and some of the cigar box/lead pencil characteristics of a fine claret. I think it could easily pass as a very decent St Julien/Pauillac. Would probably pair well with steak. A serious wine for the 'Old World' drinkers.
