Stunning! Drinking perfectly now. Opens up after 30--45 in the glass. Mouthfuls of black licorice, dried meat, and herbs. hint of mint. One of the best super Tuscans I had ever enjoyed. After ten years, she is amazing!
Am amazed at how powerful and tannic this is out of the bottle, despite ten years of age. It has piercing definition at first, but opens up after a half hour. There are sunburned leather tones that make the terroir unmistakable.
Drinking very well and still pretty youthful. Silky dark fruit that started a little too sweet but mellowed out with air, allowing earthy tones and minerals to come through. Some tannic grip on the finish and slightly low in acidity but overall a smooth delicious super tuscan. 92-93
