"The 2004 Corbaia is 70% Sangiovese and 30% Merlot that also spent two years in Allier oak barrels. Interestingly, the Corbaia is softer and rounder than the Girolamo at this point. Polished, ripe tannins frame a core of dark cherries, licorice, new leather and spices. The wine reveals a graceful elegance that comes to life on the long, harmonious finish. Today the Corbaia reveals a touch more vibrancy and overall elegance than the Girolamo." Antonio Galloni
N.B. Galloni suggests that this wine should have been drunk up by 2019, but there is a positive note on Cellar Tracker from February 2021 suggesting that it is still drinking very well
All our wines are given a Sweetness Indicator from 1 to 5, with 1 being the driest and 5 being the sweetest.
This can be found for every wine under the Wine Details tab.
Most red wines are dry and therefore are indicated with a 1. The sweetness becomes more relevant with white wines, sparkling wines and pudding/dessert wines such as Sauternes and Tokaji.
