Reviews & Scores
This part of Italy suffered from the same poor weather as much of Europe in 1997, experiencing hailstorms in July. Despite this, it produced some excellent wines. This example is dark-fruited, with very fine grip and incisive acidity. Aromatic plum and raspberry edging helps to lift this monolith, which is textural to the core and simply absorbs the 17.5% alcohol like a sponge. It perhaps just needs more time for the drying wood and tannins on the finish to resolve.

This shows so much fruit with licorice and graphite undertones. Full and round with velvety tannins and a long, long finish. A great wine. Drink now.

An inky/purple color is followed by sumptuous aromas of blueberry liqueur intermixed with truffle, graphite, camphor, and vanilla scents. This remarkable offering is immensely full-bodied and super-concentrated, with great purity, symmetry, and length. WA

 Dark color. Superpowerful aromas of dark chocolate, blackberry jam and spices from cloves to cinnamon. Full-bodied, with ultravelvety tannins. This juicy and superfruity, with beautiful balance and length. Youthful and beautiful. Classy wine.--1997 Italian blind retrospective. Best after 2010.
