Review from original list creator: "Prugnolo Gentile (Sangiovese) 90%, Mammolo 10% Deep and complex on the nose with an initial burst of leather and mineral followed by hints of thyme, toasted oak and nuts and dark berry fruit all topped with a hint of mint. Fairly rich and powerful with blast of plummy fruit early on the palate followed by dark cherry fruit, subtle mineral notes a lovely notes of tobacco and blackberries on the backend. Round, rich and in need of a bit of further cellaring this is a powerful wine that shows uncommon complexity, depth and finesse at this price or double this price. The only knock is that the finish is a bit short with some drying tannins but they may very well soften perfectly with time. For now serve this with a nice steak or stew. 88pts" by 89065Gregory Dal Piaz
