Flesh and blood, slight animal touch, red fruit, bitter wood. Got killed served next to Nambrot 2006 and Monteti 2006 and bordeaux origin was quite clear. So, QPR?

Super complex and interwoven, waves of fruit that keep coming and are mixed into the structure of the wine, extremely long finish

Slightly oxidative, hazelnut, pear, apple, finesse, elegant, great acidity. Personally not to keen on the oxidative character, but your mileage may vary. 90/91

Cassis, concentration, still young and firm, deep flavors, touch of wood. On day 3 lots of herbs and nicely mellowed. Can still go a few years, still not at peak.

Luxurious fruit and wood, slight heat, really jummy but lacks the "x-factor" to be really great

Expectations were not high, given previous encounters with this vintage.

But this was enjoyable, the darker fruit profile hinting at the inclusion of merlot. However, despite the merlot, the body remains medium.

One drawback: when you leave the wine resting in the glass for a while, an off-putting bitterness starts to show.

On day 2 the wine hadn't changed, indicating some potential still.

This bottle was solid, but not excellent. Apparently some remarkable bottle variation here, which is troublesome...

Great QPR, transcends the barbera grape and its limiting wine tipicity (great with food but not on its own), no further notes

Again, a great bottle. This wine is at peak imo. Spices, dark fruit, smoke, touch of wood, and still powerful but ever so slightly subdued compared to previous bottles. Long lingering aftertaste, very rewarding. The complexity and the interwoven acidity turns drinking this bottle into a real experience. Great pairing with steak.

Nice wine, clearly sangiovese but you can sense the other indigenous varieties "behind the curtain" adding a twist of spices and complexity - and clearly a different profile from the popular formula of sangiovese beefed up with some cabernet and / or merlot. So, very interesting to taste. Solid 90, verging on 91. In the drinking window, but still feels youthfull, so can still go a couple of years

Warm, unbalanced, simply not tasty. Too much bitters and some hard tannins at the back, seems tired - no finish, no depth

Polished, black fruit, vanilla, heavy style, too much actually, a real bomb. Figs, plums, and a lot of heat. Still, drinks smoothly. A travesty of Spanish wine.

Strawberries, cherries, very light and an abundance of fruit. I don't see the appeal here; to me, this is nothing but a grossly overpriced 'vin de soif', with the heat of alcohol becoming painfully apparent when the wine warms up in the glass.

Mind you, it's not bad or faulty, it just totally doesn't justify its rating (not by a long shot)
