Community Tasting Notes (59) Avg Score: 91.5 points

  • Funky mature nose of smoky licorice, sweet prunes, black fruits and minerals. Sweet and mature with flavors of charred earth, black cherry, menthol and prunes. The finish is still a bit tannic with nice complexity on the finish with notes of smoke, coffee and minerals. Delicious but a bit sweet now for my palate.

  • 1st of 12, decanted an hour - dark and dense; classic black cherry and plum, if a bit monolithic; bit of a bruiser, full, long, chewy, initially impressive in an unnuanced way but quite tiring on the palate......we'll see. Not complex enough for better than very good indeed (17/20).

  • Lots of life left still in this wine it seems (contradicting tasting note from a year ago). Dark brooding, smokey and meaty yet silky smooth on the palete and finishes with a nice touch of acidity. Alas my last bottle.

  • This is good stuff. Nice color, no signs of age. Big nose bringing raspberry jam, definitely more red fruit here, with some candied odors too. Big fruit palate, nice acidity and a long finish. Had plenty of acid to handle pizza. Much better than a previous bottle I remember. (Enjoyed more with the pizza than after...tannins still somewhat tough when on its own.)

  • PnP. Perfect long, tight cork with very little bleed. Grilled meat with mushrooms on the nose. Red cherry, black cherry, raspberry. Just a touch of strawberry--I friggin' love strawberry in my brunello. This is ready, but isn't fading any time soon. Very nice. 92-93
