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. (EB)
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. (JS, Web Only-2007)
The large 246-acre estate is owned by Countess Noemi Cinzano, of the vermouth family. With Giacomo Tachis as consultant, the vineyard has produced a powerful, rich wine that combines dryness, bitter fruits and dark tannins with generous tarry, super-ripe fruit that promises to come through and dominate as the wine ages. Drink after 7-8 years. *Cellar Selection* (RV)
Rich but transparent. Very, very lively, lovely and complete now. A real success. 17/20 points. (JR)
