90 Points

Wednesday, April 25, 2012 - Inky dark ruby, purple rim, ripe cherry nose. Dry, red fruits, bold body, some heat, bitter tannins on PnP, 86pts. Will give it another day to integrate. Another day really helped improve the wine. The fruit is brighter, the bitter is still there, but not offensive. I am really seeing bitter in the Italians lately, I may be letting them age too long. When it first had this wine three years ago, it was OMG delicious. Now it is just OK. Either it has changed or I have. With out the bitter, it would approach that aged Italian that I enjoy. Drink up. Give it another day and the glory is back, the bitter has diminished to a bitter almond, luscious mouthfeel, soft tannins, light acid, medium body and fruit. Another night, and more improvement, bright fruit, raspberries, very nice balance of acid, fruit and tannins.
