Needs decanting. Serious, powerful wine. Should be even better in 5 years.

Decanted, the wine needs at least 3 or more years. Complex, serious nose, long finish. It has excellent potential.

Modern, structured, fresh and well balanced. Dark fruits, tar and a hint of flowers with medium plus acidity and long spicy finish. Drinking great now.

Overly sweet, it almost feels as if sugar has been added... really bad.

Easy drinking, light and round, the acidity keeps it lively. Solid Sangiovese, at a good QPR.

Big improvement after waiting in the cellar two more years. I believe it to be in its peak drinking window. Dark fruits, long finish, well balanced with the acidity keeping it lively.

Fruit Bomb. Very nice nose, smooth and extremely fruity palate that will quickly tire you out.

Dark fruits, spicy, striking acidity, balanced and very long finish. It will soften up the edges with another 3-4 years of bottle aging, with potential to become a 93-94.
Red
Too bitter, overpowering. Maybe flawed?

Aromatic nose full of black fruits, sweet tannis, well structured, round with a long 45 second lasting taste. Excellent wine that should drink well for 4 or 5 more years.

Restrained nose. Red berries on the palate, pleasant taste, not much length or complexity. Not a good QPR.

OK wine, decanted for 1hour. Good nose, medium/full body, although too much wood is sensed on the palate and lacks some acidity.

Good nose. A very round wine in the mouth. Medium-full bodied, fruity, with just a hint of oak and, firm, sweet grippy tannins. The finish goes on and on.
Excellent wine, drinking well now.
