    October 20, 2014 - Great wine. Much better than my previous bottle. Wine needs some air so decant it 2 hrs in front. Tertiair aromas, hints of leather. Nice.

    July 28, 2014 - just ok; bitter, raisiny, slightly medicinal nose. It is better after decanting with a good texture.

    August 28, 2013 - This does require a good amount of air time (2-3 hours) before it opens up, but once it does - WOW! So much Tuscan character on both the nose and palate. More recent vintages of this (2006-09) have been made in a much "bigger", more modern/international style - with not as much prominence to the Sangiovese and less sense of place. This is a beautiful, textbook Super-Tuscan from a very good vintage that is now in its prime. Gorgeous aromas of plums, leather and spice on the nose. Full-bodied, but quite understated. Layer upon layer of tangy dark fruit flavor, complemented by the perfect amount of acidity. The long, complex finish contains notes of oak, spice, espresso and a hint of citrus. So satisfying, balanced and elegant.
