2009 Fortissimo David Lawrason

β€œThe 2009 Fortissimo is incredibly Italian in nature, with 8% Sangiovese in the blend. It has a nose of red currant and sundried tomato that could be right out of Tuscany, with fresh green herbs, a touch of conifer, and background leather. It’s medium weight, edgy and vibrant yet packing good density and some richness at the same time… there is adequate depth to suggest this will age well.”
