My second bottle of this, and it was easily as good as the first one. This needs about 15 minutes of air before showing right, but when it does, it really is on right now. Super nose that reminds a little of Bordeaux with great elegance and wild rusticity at the same time. Not fiercely tannic, but a wine that can age for many more years. Finishes well, and like many Italian wines, was a great match to food tonight — homemade Lasagna. Great wine and although maybe not exactly a QPR at retail, it is worth the money, I believe.

I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.
