2010 Poggio al Tesoro Dedicato a Walter

Verdict? Ready?

I'd say so, although it seemed a bit young still.  I liked it better than the 07 and 08 vintages which I drank recently.

Opened one tonight. Agreed: it's an excellent wine and drinking well, but could benefit from a few more years of taming.
