Morello cherry, tobacco, ashes, tree sap, fresh rosemary. Ripe and suave on entry with balanced acidity. Savory on the back end with mouthcoating tannins. The warmth of the site seems to yield a wine with much depth of fruit making it certainly drinkable, but I think it has more to offer in time as the tannins resolve. (90-92 points.) Can drink now, but better 2017 to 2022+.
Drinking beautifully now, earlier than some of the other Terre Nere wines. Clear light brick color, great nose of minerals, cherries and herbs, with hints of anise and mint. Full flavors of these same elements with some earthiness. Solid, pleasing acidity, savory but not lip-smacking like in its youth. Long, long flavors, and the fragrances emanating from the coating inside the empty glass can last indefinitely, like a great digestivo. Not an inexpensive wine, but a wonderful one.
