    You will find a little bit of Tuscany in this glass that is ripe and fleshy with cocoa, spice, black fruit and density, full-bodied and broad on the palate with complex layers of earth and some soft tannin on the finish. This is a wine that is very user friendly now and has the aging potential over the next few years. This is the ideal match for red meats and roasted poultry or just a BIG glass all by itself after a long day from work.

    The nose of this wine says depth, structure, not verbiage I normally include for the nose, but in this case you can really smell the power. The aromatics are an array of cocoa powder, black currant, wild cherry hints of tobacco and leather. On the palate the wine shows depth and concentration but never heavy, you can sense this is a wine made in barrique there is that slight torque one gets from small barrels yet they barrique doesn’t flavor the wine. The flavors are still, dark cocoa powder, cassis, blackberry with hints of leather and bits of heather and truffle. The finish is long, focused and tense, this is a wine that will benefit greatly from a longer aging but even in just 6 months to a year it will blossom tremendously. Complex, powerful Bordeaux styled Super Tuscan that shows the Panzano terroir.

    The "Giorgio" 2012 is a step up from the excellent 2011 and it's so good in fact, that it took us by surprise. It's impeccably balanced with a velvety and luxurious mouthful of chocolaty black fruit and fine ingrained tannins. The depth of fruit, ample structure and overall integration make this an ideal cellar candidate. Otherwise, open and give it a good amount of aeration or decant. Ribeye time for sure.
