After reading all the premox comments,decided to open my first one since release and was quite pleased how young it was. Crisp, floral with fine minerality. Hoping that my other bottles of this and Clos will also show well.

Deep purple,wonderful leather and burnt orange nose, dried plum and black smoky tea palate- advise decanting for sediment and aeration a few hours ahead-superb rendition of a Rosso (not a "baby" Brunello by any means )and outperforms some Brunellos
