Added Jul 30, 2012 at 5:10pm91 Pts Popped and poured. Reticent at first with fine toned wood and earth fragrances and a hint of richness at the core. The fruit on the nose is dried red cherry, blended with some incense. The palate has a bit darker character, with dense black cherry, some anise and dried herbs, with fine tannins and mild acidity. Solid palate, with a blanket of finesse on top. The acid seems a bit low, but otherwise there are well balanced components here that should blend beautifully in time. This opened nicely with time in the glass.

Added Jun 19, 2012 at 7:03pm88 Pts Pretty baking spice over dusty black cherry with a suggestion of sweetness. Also on the nose are notes of grilled meat and faint iron. The fruit on the palate is the highlight, with moderate density in the red and black cherry notes. There is plenty of typical acidity supporting the palate. Later, a distinct note of sweet cherry wood comes out. Finishes with moderate length and subtle tannins. A bit disjointed, but very enjoyable.

Added Jun 16, 2012 at 9:23am90 pts. edit... 6/16/2012 rated 90 points: Dusty red and black cherry skins, with savory dried herbs on the nose. There's a soft texture at first on the palate, accompanied by extremely lean black cherry, minerals, and a very nice core of roasted, smoky, meat. The acidity is subtle, but sufficient and the very fine grained tannins coat the mouth through the aromatic finish. Solid components that seem likely to integrate into something even nicer down the road. (0 views)

Added Jun 16, 2012 at 8:47amedit... 6/16/2012 rated 89 points: Lots of charred, woodsy notes and some aromatic spice up front on the nose. Lean strawberry, cherry, and lavender underneath and on the palate, with some sandalwood. The acidity is present, but not pronounced and fine grained tannins carry through the mid-palate and the brief finish.

Added Jun 14, 2012 at 8:55pmTypical notes of mature Sangiovese. Rich earth, tea, forest floor, and lean cherry. On the palate, light weight and soft textured, with dusty cherry, brown sugar, some minerality, and pretty good balance. Finishes with some length and a bit of grip. Very pleasant, but not showing a lot of complexity.

Socre Barbaresco 2007
Added Jun 11, 2012 at 7:11pmPure cherry fruit with dried herbs, charred wood notes and anise. There's also a hint of creamy cherry. On the palate, dried red cherry with lots of fine grained grip and big acidity. Later, sweet Asian spice and a whiff of watermelon on top. Balanced but needs time to integrate and settled down.
