Tor - Cabernet Sauvignon Mast Vineyard
Very deep black fruits, perhaps a bit overpowering. I would expect 5 yrs of additional age would resolve the very jammy overall persona of the wine.
Altesino - Brunello di Montalcino Montosoli
Really needs the right food pairing to bring out the best in the wine. Also recommend decanting for more than an hour.
Saint Prefert - Chateauneuf du Pape Auguste Favier Reserve
Not yet fully integrated. Lots of potential.
Luciano Sandrone - Barolo Le Vigne
Still very tight. Needs 5 more years to come in. Should be great when it does.
Eredi Fuligni - Brunello di Montalcino (Vigneti Dei Cottimelli)
Definitly still developing. Full bodied, drying but fine tannins, rasberry and casis on the back palate. This has a long way to go still, and i would wait another 5 yrs to see development, but that will be hats bc this is pretty good brunello.
