(2000 Vintage) The colour is an intense glossy garnet, with orange reflections. The bouquet is ethereal, with hints of violets, blackberry jam, licorice and cloves. The palate is dry and austere, with a lingering hint of almonds.
Tar & red cherry sauce on the nose. Beautiful blackberry, red cherry, olive & tarry flavours. Lush palate; soft tannins. Ready to go. 91 pts.
Earth and mushrooms mingling in Piemontese harmony with plums and autumn chestnuts. Like a great Burgundy,but with more weight.
