Stunning. Popped and put thru vinturi and decanted for 2.5hrs. A tremendously big & impeccably balanced brunello. Deep purple in color. Nose of anise, licorice, leather, earth & spice. Silky mouthfeel dominated by dark fruits, anise, hint of wood & spice. Chewy tannins carry you thru the enormous finish. This baby brings the goods. Can't wait to see where this one goes.....but absolutely delicious right now!
my 1st try with a straight cab franc & i am a fan. popped & left uncorked for 3hrs. had a nice color and nose of red fruit, herbs & spice. easy mouthfeel with a cedar component. good balance of fruit & acidity. some lingering tannin. a nice bottle of wine.
