Dinner party gift from a friend. Minimally decanted....which did it no favours. Young in colour and warmly pleasing but basicaly closed on the nose. Palate is rich, ripe, sultry fruit, new oak in its good way.......overall, I could summarise it as young but very succulent. Fun to drink now with food but can only improve over the next few years.....although not, I suspect, in line with its current price point.
Got this bottle at the estate in Piedmont and brought it back to taste at home. A great wine still young and not open. Intense aroma of roses, dry red fruits, a touch of sandalwood. Still from the modern era with a little too much extraction and barrique aromas but it should reward some years of cellaring. Medium + accidity and tannins, polished.
