    Reticent aromas of cassis, black cherry, woodsmoke and tobacco. Extremely backward and tight on the palate, with the firm structure of the vintage. Not yet showing its flesh. But finishes with superb persistence and ripe tannins. Classic sangiovese, built for the long haul. Just released. A barrel sample of the '97, due out in the fall of 2001, was a dense, thick knockout, with extraordinary aromatics and tannins that reached every nook and cranny of the palate.
