Tuscany holiday spring 2014; 4/11/2014-4/18/2014 (Tuscany (San Grimignano)): This tasted fully mature. bricking is eating a centimetre or 2 through the wine. the nose is all leather and cherry and almost leaps out of the glass. on the palate more leather cherry and tobacco with a hint of flowers such as violets, still fresh and very much alive, it will probably hold now for a number of years, still a little tannin giving it a bit of grip at the end. if there's a nit to pick it is the finish that doesn't last as long as you would like, but its a sexy and delicious bottle of wine.
Quite beautiful and open strawberry nose of truffles, liquorice,chocolate and toffee as well as fresh herbs, menthol and smoke. Medium bodied and structured palate with juicy fruit. Currants, red cherries and slight bell pepper. Tighter aftertaste with good length. Good stuff. More oak than in some other vintages, but just adding to the complexity. Drinking nicely.
