Three hour decant. This bottle, at least, was not the tannic beast described above. Fruit forward but balanced, it was a huge hit with our "Sopranos"-themed supper club (Bolognese, sausage and peppers, etc...). Well structured and ageable, for sure, but I like where its at. 91
A beast of a Brunello and especially for an '07. Red fruit, roses, leather, and a boatload of tannin. Everyone at the table thought it was nebbiolo as I knew they would. If you open now I'd suggest decanting for several hours. Tried putting through an aerator which only exaggerated the tannin and killed the fruit.
