Thursday, December 6, 2012 - Costa Russi - 03
On the nose cherries, some smoke and minerals, gunpowder, licorice, a bit of heat and some menthol.
On the palate this wine has a nice balance, with soft tannins and good balance on a long finish.
I found some white pepper, cherries, violets, and actually a bit of gunpowder in the mouth too.
A great wine, with a long life ahead.
93 (for now, will improve)
