Vinitaly 2015 - The Intrepid Wino
Cleaner lighter, fresher but with the same purity. Will be interesting to see it once in bottle and arrived in Australia.
Lighter on the nose, more subtle, tight lean focused but not quite the same, a bit too safe?
Purity focus crunchiness, potent. Fine bright carbonic notes, tight lean tannins, not the same as 2013.
Cabernet Franc 2014
Very intense varietal nose, herbal, bright tight. Light lean a bit dirty on the back in a nice way, not as varietal on the palate. Reasonable amount of tannin.
A lot more shy on the nose, but still nice pure focus and subtle dark fruits. Oak a little too prominent at the moment, adding quite a bit of tannin to the mouth feel, needs a bit more depth of fruit, needs some more time perhaps?
