I can see why the tannins and oak would be overwhelming for some, however after a couple of hours of decanting it showed character and depth with notes of aged leather and dried fruit with a fantastic, long finish.
A well-made wine with good flavour depth, but I find the oak to be quite prevalent. Odd, since supposedly the wine is 50% tank aged. I just don't get enough of the aglianco character shining though. I suspect that others who enjoy wood flavours in their wine will enjoy this more that I.
