Donatella Cinelli Colombini Il Drago e le 8 Colombe 2014

Montalcino, Siena, Tuscany, ItalyThis is quite a savoury Tuscan blend of sangiovese (60%), merlot (20%), and sagrantino (20%), which is very much on the oxidative side of the spectrum, even for Italy. Expect sundried tomato, sandalwood, leather, and not a lot of obvious fruit at this point of its life. There’s a notch more verve to the palate, though the fruit's not overly concentrated or dense, with grainy tannins that dry out the finish.
