TASTING NOTES

"Deep garnet core with a ruby rim. Heady sottobosco aroma reminiscent of sweet pipe tobacco laced with the perfumed scent of violets. Deep plum flavor mingles with cherry jam, bitter chocolate and roasted coffee bean; very fresh and clear. The wine offers a superb sense of depth and harmony on the middle palate, and the tannins are firm but ripe. The long, silky finish is graced by an undercurrent of anise. Generous, suave, and delicious." Edward Beltrami, Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

"Dark ruby, with hints of red on the edge. Blackberry aromas, with hints of fresh porcini and fresh meat. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a long, long finish. Layered and beautiful. Better than I remember.--1997 Italian blind retrospective. 11,000 cases made." Wine Spectator

"Rich but transparent. Very, very lively, lovely and complete now. A real success." JancisRobinson.com
