Was the crowd pleaser but to me the less interesting of the wines compared to the graffiante. Started out muted but came into its own and proved why Sangiovese and the wines of Montalcino pair so well with pasta and tomato based sauces. Just glided over the palate with soft tannins and light fruit. A foretaste of the elegance of the 2010 Brunelli? Nonetheless I like some more excitement.
