Popped and poured through the vinifier but still needs some air. Got it to room temperature unopened all day. Wonderful nose of dark fruits fresh acidity mellow tannins medium body. This is good wine that will get better I'm enjoying it. Viva Toscana!!
Having been a bit torn on this wine in the past i have to confess this bottle was very good. Well balanced dark fruit with freshness and good acidity. A full palate of sour black cherries and a backbone of cedar and tabacco. Present tannins waiting to mellow and i would save this for another couple of years.
This is really drinking well right now with a bit of air. I concur with nearly everything from the previous tasting note. Especially the black tea, which is an interesting nuance on the nose. There is also a herbal note here; I was thinking basil, but it might very well be oregano. 90, with potential for a few more points in a year or two.
