2004 Fontalloro, Fèlsina

2004 Fontalloro, Fèlsina
After 15 years under the cork this is ready for prime time drinking. The nose is open, inviting and attractive with notes of cherry licorice, dried rosemary, cold coffe, rich flowers and those lovely aromas of a warm Tuscan gravel road in the summer. A very fine maturity. A very fine dried up sweetness. Lovely.
The taste is mature yet fresh and salivating with notes of dried cherries, warm tiles, bonfire smoke and dried herbs. There is a hint of unresolved tannins at the end of the finish. Succulent and fine. In a perfect drinking window.
