It's only wine but I like it

Restasted Aug 2016. Evolving nicely, tannin softening. Very fine Rosso here and drinking well now. Drink now -2018.

Original tasting note:Surprisingly dark for a sangiovese, this is a rosso that really needs a bit more time in the bottle. Characteristic sour cherry fruit, with firm tannin, fine acidity and a long finish. While drinkable now, I suggest 2-3 years in bottle to allow the tannin to mellow a bit. I would not be surprised to see this wine reach its 10th birthday and still provide much drinking pleasure. Tasted August 2013.
