Community Tasting Notes (4) Avg Score: 87.3 points

  • Disappointingly over-ripe, jammy and borderline baked. It has its moment of enticement in the initial impression after opening, but a little air causes the roasted qualities to emerge, acid to recede if it was ever there, and what's left lacks charm and refinement. Plummy fruit finishes hot. I don't know what the '10 vintage was supposed to be like in Montepulciano, but here it seems it was broiling hot or they left the grapes out too long. This has a somewhat silky texure that I would gladly trade for some sangiovese bite. Could have been made in a factory in the Maremma for all I can tell. Hard to drink and harder to finish.

  • clear, ruby, perfect colour. nose: very sharp, fresh cherries; with some add of plums; steel notes. taste: quite dense; a lot of animal and liver-pate notes on the plaete; opaque tanins all over the mouth. not well composed. Give it 1 year to develop.

  • Popped and poured. Herb and cherry aromas. Full flavors of cherries and licorice. Licorice dominates the lingering finish with elements of cocoa appearing over time. Classic sangiovese with a firm tannic structure supporting lovely fruit flavors. There's potential for future development but it's great right now. Outstanding QPR at $15.

  • nose: nice and savory nose with tones of roasted herbs, dark red cherries, berries and a touch of florals. Nice depth with the savory quality really showing through

    taste: medium bodied with medium+ acidity and plush tannins. Nicely balanced with savory tones of roasted herbs, dark red cherries and some berry tones

    overall: this is a real quality rosso. The savory-ness of it really shines through and makes it very attractive
