Smelling like a stale, dusty attic when opened, this well-priced Super Tuscan is indeed quite closed at first and takes quite some time to get moving. When it does, it plays very much like an Italian version of left-bank Bordeaux, which is pretty much what it is (Cab-Merlot, with Syrah), and it does so decently with cassis, dark cherry, graphite, and oak atop a solid structure. But it never quite gets there, never opens up enough, and while there's potential for aging, the fruit seems limited, and overall it just seems to lack charm and character. It's fine for what it is, but that's about it.
