This is one of the promising new wines I have tasted from Italy – ever! Dark and deep colour. Surprisingly wide and open nose with loads of wild blackberies, herbs, liquorice, and floral aromas. Solid and firm. Very powerful, almost too gigantic a wine with sweet tannin and a multilayered texture. The gentle, wide and sweet finish lasted almost forever. in my judgement this is fuller and more intense than the excellent 2009 and has better structure than the outstanding 2008.
