Decanted to remove solids, then let rest for a few minutes. This wine is tasting great right now! Rich, dark red cherries and classic earthy notes as found in a great Brunello. Dark red without any discoloration on the rim. Dark red fruit nose. No off flavors. Tastes just as good the second day too.
open a couple hours and tasting throughout, at first a bit of oak showing and quite dark, over the time this didn't move much, still dark and monolithic, only towards the end did this show a bit of brightness. Could use more time.
Gosh! This is not a good wine in my opinion, at all. Heavy oak nose, hot with alcohol and sweet dark fruits. Palate follows the nose, sticky sweet over extracted and oak battered. Really disappointed about how the wines from Montepeloso I have had lately has shown, and will not restock again, ever. The whole line up seems to be extremely manipulated, over oaked and overdone. Lacks all finesse, elegance and pureness. Disappointment. (82 – 84)
Great bottle of Italian wine. Dark and brooding, good fruit and complex flavors of tar, tobacco, smoked beef, licorice. Super silky tannins and well-balanced acidity. Already drinking well now, but with several years of ageing potential ahead. - 92 points
