  • blind tasting of 17 different kind of wines all over the world

    Drank together with Termanthia 2005, preferred the Italian wine at this stage, more accissible.

    ripe dark berries, cassis, some vanilla, aromas from the barrique, ripe tannins, very powerful but elegant in another way, a lot of future for the next 20 years 95+

  • detta vin levererade inte vad det ska göra enligt mig, näsan är väldigt sval med kola blyerts, blå frukt, torrt och lite dammigt intryck. Gissade på södra Rhone på detta vin och tyckte kanske inte doften var så bra.
    Smaken är bättre än doften, söt frukt dominerar men även här är den lite blyg, troligen är vinet i en tunnel och därför inte blommar ut.

  • Nose shows a cool profile, dusty and dry, dry fruit with sweeter red small berries, herbs, mint, with a small touch of acetone and leather.
    Palate is somewhat closed, showing only hints of fine red fruit, silky tannins, rather high acidity, with tart red berries on the long finish.
    Balanced but not very expressive.
    Very different from previous bottles enjoyed, as this seemed much more closed and less straight forward and expressive.
    Fruit is somewhat hidden at this point.
    This should be better.
    It might be in a transition phase at this point, ready to burst out in a year or a few?
    I hope so, because this was rather disappointing, compared to my expectations.

  • On the nose, cassis, cold blue berries, dust, nice fine herbs, licorice and some fine dark plums.
    On the palate, blueberries, fine but very present acidity and tannins.
    Medium + finish

    A wine that has to be in a tunnel at the moment. This do not deliver at the best right now. Still a very good wine

  • Truly outstanding wine! Big and muscular vs the equally impressive Ornellaia's which are more supple and toned. Serve after min one to two hour decant.
