Dinner with good friends at I Trulli (I Trulli, Flatiron, NYC): Deep blood, a little bricking. Deep and spicy on the nose, licorice, spice cake, molasses - blackstrap, really. Yummy, and gained a significant florality with more air. The palate is tannic tannic, brutally; it has fruit, and loads of acidity, but this is many years from resolving. Good, dense length displays its fundamentally sound balance. Wait... I wouldn't even try this for another 10 years, personally.
