Light aromatic tones on the nose with a touch of wood spice. In the mouth there’s good fruit with nice stemmy, strawberry top tones up front balanced by cigar box notes that add some sweetness to the fruit across the mid-palate. The fruit lacks some definition though the finish is juicy and crisp with slightly under-ripe strawberry tones. This has good length and is youthful and nervous but will never be a blockbuster. 90pts

Produced from 95% Sangiovese and 5% mammolo. In contrast to the open and giving 2004 CCR this bottle opens very slowly with intriguing notes of vanilla tinged jammy blackberry fruit that is framed with gentle toast notes and a very fine mineral vein that grows in intensity. After about an hour this really blossoms with fine perfumed scents of violets, hot beach sand, hot iron, subtle cinnamon and a light top note of fine cigar smoke. In the mouth this will appeal to those who prefer balance and precision over power and weight. Opening with great cut, this it tight and almost tough with emerging notes of oyster shell and very small red currant fruit but the balance and definition are wonderful and the sapidity and austerity of the wine keep one coming back again and again. With time the wine fills out a touch and gains a sneaky length as the tight core of fruit turns towards blackberry and ends with a subtle mint tinged hard candy note. 92pts

This also still shows its oak but with rich notes of camphor, violets, black raspberry, and oystershells all adding to the perfume. On the palate this is very round and lush with a nice feel. The structure is nicely soften and well integrated into he remaining fruit. The tannins on the finish were really refreshingly crisp, finely facetted. A lovely wine that was probably better a few years ago but it’s so well balanced it is slowly fading away instead of flailing over the cliff’s edge. 89pts

Toasty cocoa with nice fruit up front. Finishes on strong acid. Needs more time in the bottle. - WS Grand Tour 2011
