Thursday, August 27, 2020 - Quest to complete my tasting of all DOCG of Italy; 6/5/2020-8/31/2020 (Home in NL and holiday home in Maremma / Italy): Initially quite closed and almost astringent after popping the cork. I decided to open another wine. Then we forgot about the bottle and left it in the wine cooler under vacuum. Then 3 days later: hmm, this is actually a really nice wine!

Ruby color with a slight purple hue. Full aromas of blackcurrant, some cherry and boxwood and hints of green pepper and vanilla. Full bodied with chewy-smooth tannins and fresh acidity. The finish is long and fresh with a slight bitter/drying twist.

This wine is still very young and might benefit from a decant but certainly needs some time to show its full potential. Probably better to leave it alone for a few more years. Drink 2022 - 2030.
