Young and tarry on the nose. Mauro had asked me when I decanted the wines. When I replied that it had been about 2 hours he told me next time I should consider 5 or 8 hours and in his experience 12-18 hours in a cool cellar is really the ideal time to allow these wines to fully open up! This opened slowly but most likely would have benefited from an additional several hours though the intense aromas of dried rose faded in the glass leaving notes of coffee bean and wet cigar but over dark, iron and black spice tinged fruit with big notes of sweet mint wafting in and out of the glass. In the mouth this was elegant with big, bright acids and wonderfully integrated tannins. This had a finesse that most of the other wines lacked yet while it was smooth and dark it never really revealed its fruit in a clear and obvious way. A wine with a very good future and still very youthful. 2009-2030 93pts
