Took about six hours to open up, beautiful pretty red cherry fruit and dusty fine tannins

The golden standard of Sangiovese. 1008 A little rounder in the mid-palate but absolutely delicious.

Blinded on this wine and it's still unmistakably "it" - still sad about Manetti's opinions about humanity.

@DIG Wine SF. Pergole Torte 2010 So good. Stacks the best of the 08 and 09 together. I would drink the 08 while this integrates—hmmm, or maybe I'll just drink the 10 forever like every other 10. Ripeness with tension. Evergreen, moss. This is stacked yet feminine. This is going to be really good in a few years when the tannins and the wine settle a bit. Snails, earth. Concentration and finesse.
