  • Very nice

  • Opened up real tight at first, decanted half the bottle. Towards the third hour, well-defined quality secondary aromatics of leather, tobacco, oak, and a hint of dried herbs. Really dark and broody on the fruit side with dried ripe cherry, but well balanced with the secondaries. On the palate, full and powerful for a Sangiovese, in fact pretty masculine compared to other Sangioveses.
    [1855 Bottle Shop, Sixth Avenue @S$84.00]

  • Another excellent showing, a whole lot of charm, verve, and substance for the price. Immensely appealing bouquet; the type that makes you not want to put down the glass. Medium minus body, medium plus acid, light plus tannins. Rounded and bracing! Delicious!

  • no decant. carmine w/garnet highlights; dried cherry preserves, brown spices & wild herbal quality aromatics; med+ weight; a touch more ripe-ish at 5 years than this has been typically, w/herb-inflected sour cherries & cranberry-red apple confiture, broad & earthy palate, still taut, but acids & tannins are low-keyed & agreeable. maybe not as broad a drinking window as usual, but still a few years from optimal drinking. (1/6)

    local shiitake & fennel sausage pizza; celery, radicchio & escarole heart salad w/medjool dates & shaved pecorino

  • Nose has cherry kirsch and dried herbal notes and some vanilla.

    Taste: Fairly luscious and juicy black cherry fruit with notes of leather, subtle dried savory herbs (thyme?).

    Excellent for the price and drinking very well at the end of 2014. Should go at least two to three more years.
