A touch reticent on the nose but some swirling brings out an attractive bouquet of wild herbs, earth, almost violet floral notes and small wild cherry fruits with hints of blueberries and grilled meat adding subtle complexity. This enters the mouth with real energy, great concentration of fruit that is rich and powerful but neither sweet nor fruity is immediately cut by vibrant acids that lend this a mineral edge. The tannins have a touch of pine nuttiness to them, but are ripe and soft adding further detail in the mouth and contributing to the wines lush, fullish feel. The finish is pure and long, a bit rusty with red cherry and currant fruits. Medium full, elegant and nuanced this is delicious and has a great texture, Serve it with bistecca alla Fiorentina. 89pts
