The 2005 Testamatta is 100% Sangiovese aged 18 months in new French oak. It is a beautiful, pleasing Testamatta in its sweet red cherry fruit layered with sweet toasted oak. The wine remains quite vibrant and in need of further bottle in age in order for the full range of its aromas and flavors to come through. This shows notable harmony. It is a terrific effort from one of Italy's finest growers.

Lots of plum skin, violet, blackberry and cedar aromas follow through to a full body, with toasty oak and currant. Firm finish. Solid as a rock. Sangiovese.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
