(From 1997 Vintage) Dark ruby red. Loads of porcini aromas and some raisin and spices. Then turns to flowers. Full-bodied, superconcentrated and supertannic. This is such a baby, but there's loads of everything here. From berry, vanilla to raspberry and blackberry.
(From 1997 Vintage) This Piedmont beauty is dark in color and beautifully compacted on the midpalate, where it displays gorgeous blackberry, black cherry, mint and spicy oak notes. Tannins are firm and ripe. A serious red that needs time. Best from 2002 through 2008.
