95 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - July/August 2011

Bright, dark red.  Knockout perfume of black cherry, black raspberry, minerals, violet, rose petal and a whiff of dark chocolate.  Silky on entry, then almost painfully intense in the middle, with terrific backbone and acidity to the classy fruit, mineral and dark chocolate flavors. This boasts fruit of steel, and great clarity.  Finishes with a compelling savory quality, a spine of noble tannins and outstanding subtle persistence.

The nose on this is fantastic and I enjoyed inhaling it every bit as much as the wine itself. The wine was delicious right out of the bottle with no decanting, and married well with some dry-aged NY strip steak. It continued to come around while in the glass, but I'm convinced there is still more left to be revealed in the years ahead. Four and half stars at this point; will wait to drink the remaining bottles.
Very happy.

Earthy with some fruit overtone. Two hours of decanting opened it up nicely.

About Italy

Italy, like France, offers a world of wine styles within a single country: dry Italian white wines ranging from lively and minerally to powerful and full-bodied; cheap and cheerful Italian red wines in both a cooler, northern style and a richer, warmer southern style; structured, powerful reds capable of long aging in bottle; sparkling wines; sweet wines and dessert wines.

Sangiovese

The trademark of wines from Tuscany, and especially those from the region of Chianti, was once the fiasco.
