Opened and decanted right away. There was so much sediment that it was almost scary. With only slight browning, the wine was a beautiful brick color. The nose was still classical Leonetti, with oak, cherry, fruit and the slightest hint of olives and licorice. Definitely smelled like an old wine, but it was still good. The palate had the smoothest, softest tannins and a good dose of acidity. Only a little fruit left, but it's there. The finish is long, but only leaves the "old" tastes behind. No real fruit on the finish. Went very well with a sirloin strip.
