    Wow this is a nice wine on a Thursday afternoon. Beautiful nose for such a young wine. ‘Old World’ all the way. Nose follows palate with complex tobacco, earth and damp leaves, cedar and flowers. Pretty ruby garnet color- no inky, black stuff here. Great structure to age. Lively acidity with tannic grip. Very good juice.

BdM seems to hit my Bordeaux buttons, but at a much earlier age. I don’t get the peanut butter I usually get with sangio. Very very nice.

Interesting to get your report on this. I had a bottle of the 04 Lisini Rosso two weeks ago. On release, I really though it was baby Brunello at half the price. Now it seems mature and cresting – nice but clearly not Brunello. Sorry I didn’t buy a few bottles of the real thing.
