    Default [TN] Morellino di Scansano

    Jean has been experimenting with gluten-free cooking after discovering
    last year that she's developed an inflammatory response to gluten.
    Tonight's experiment (quite successful) was a gluten-free chicken
    parmesan recipe that employs almond flour for the breading. With this,
    I opened:

    2004 Fattoria Le Pupille Morellino di Scansano "Poggio Valente"
    nose: initially, mostly pencil lead, a hint of VA (ethyl acetate?) over
    dark red fruit; later, with airing, dusty cherry
    palate: high acid, medium body, moderately tannic finish

    I purchased several bottles of this from Envoyer a few years ago, as
    it's a birthyear wine for our son. I decided to open one up tonight in
    the spirit of exploration and I must conclude that it's still a very
    young wine. Any signs of its oak treatment in its youth are now visible
    only as that intrusive pencil lead element that takes air to dissipate.
    The rest of our bottles will sit for a few more years.

    A personal favorite Mark. I haven't noticed any VA but detected a bit
    of brett but I'm one who doesn't mind a little brett.

    It wasn't at all off-putting, Bill. Another might just have called it
    "high toned" fruit, by I didn't get a whiff of ethyl acetate (something
    I recognize readily from lab).
