2001 Felsina, "Fontalloro", Tuscany, Italy

(Glass; Riedel Sommeliers Bordeuax Grand Cru)

I have enjoyed this wine many times before. It’s currently a bit tight and in a sleeping phase. Still it’s an interesting wine to drink. The nose is a bit muted, or should a say – the red berry fruits and young sweetness is currently more dominated by dark cherries. The nose is however rather linear, where you sense the Sangiovese character and everything is a tight as the paint on a red Ferrari. The taste is however rather yummy. Here you can really talk about linear – brilliant pure curl with high acidity – just as I like it. I guess it will come out of its hide in 2-3 years and provide a decade of drinking pleasure.
