Rebecca scored this wine: 96/100
From a spectacular vintage – 2010 was an exquisite vintage, not only in Italy – this elegant, silky wine is ready to drink now, though it could keep on aging. A high-end wine, it develops on the palate, delivering notes of red cherry, leather, and game with a subtle tobacco after taste. As for its body, the first impression of its texture is quite silky, but soon it develops a chewy texture courtesy of the dominant tannins. The finish lingers and satisfies. Decant before serving for at least 30 minutes. Great with, game, lamb, and grass-fed beef, and for serious dinners when you need to impress, and long to experience a deep, complex wine.
