This particular bottle was completely shut down. Nothing there but tannins and acids. There is good balance between the two and the fruit is lurking in the background. Just going to need to wait until at least three more years.
Highly extracted, very fruity, lots of cherries - both fresh and dried. High accidity, medium tannin. Flowing, medium+ body, dry tannin resembling black chokeberry finish. With time nose becomes more smoky, violets and menthol notes appear as well as pine needles. Quite tight at the moment, will improve. (92+)
Coming into its time although largely primary, a somewhat more new world style than older Tig, this is an excellent, lengthy wine, got better and better over evening, should go for 15-20 years. Got to love how grapes grow in Tuscany
