La Braccesca 2005 Antinori Vino Nobile di Montepulciano

Had this wine in my cellar since 2008 when I bought two bottles. First bottle was served almost two years ago, but did not take any notes. This second bottle was served very chilled – I actually forgot it in the freezer for about one hour. The wine warmed gradually in the glass during a pleasantly sunny SAT afternoon with 29 Celsius outside.

Deep dark red color with plenty of sediment left inside the bottle. A developed and still oaky nose, with initial stinky-earthy aromas, well blended with small black and blue berries, and coffee. Dusty tannins in the mouth, with definition and flavors of earth, barnyard, black tea and black fruits on the palate. Medium black tea-coffee bitterness on the finish. (87/100)

While there is not a pronounced complexity, the wine drinks well right now and compliments food very well. Had it with shrimps saganaki and Greek style pasta with shrimps and tomato sauce.
