Tasting evening in our “wine club” (vertical 2009, 2008 and 2007)… Ruby color, medium body, cherries, dark berries, some wood and bit of mocha, good acidity, already nicely balanced, silky and tasty tannins, medium to long finish, drinks well now and will be better in 3 or 4 years
Developing nose with medium+ intensity. Very ripe cherries, spice box, VA, black tea, pine, dusty gravel road, oak, chocolate and vanilla. Rather tight nose and it didn't really open up during the whole evening.
Dry on the palate with a medium+ acidity, tannin and body. The flavor intensity is medium+ with cherries, fresh cut herbs, black tea, dusty gravel road, oak and coffee. The finish is medium++ with loads of dusty tuscan gravel, warm earth and dark cherries.
Very young and tight today but has huge potential to become a lovely bottle of Brunello.
Alcohol, meat and perfume on the nose. Deep earthy black cherry on the palate. This is essentially black cherry grappa. Deeper than the very good 2006 Caparzo I drank a couple years ago. Slight bricking and throwing some sediment. Decanted an hour before serving and still opening up after 2 hours. Perfect with lamb ragu and homemade pasta. Great wine. As a Burgundy and nebbiolo drinker, need to knock one of these back about twice a year.
