Stunning nose of rose petal, berries, sandalwood and licorice. Full-bodied, with ripe, rich tannins and a long, long finish. All there, and very exciting. (JS)
The 2004 Giusto di Notri is a terrific effort. A richly colored ruby, this beautifully proportioned barrique-aged blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot offers lovely notes of nuanced yet vibrant ripe dark fruit, graphite, minerals and toasted oak with great length, superb balance and lively acidity which gives the wine a sense of freshness as well as lift on the finish. Still backward and primary it will require at least another year or two in the bottle. (AG)
Saturated dark ruby. An initial note of reduction dissipates with aeration to reveal pure blackberry, smoky plum and mocha aromas with enticing mineral lift and a hint of green bell pepper. Sweet and fat in the mouth, the vibrant acids helping to keep the rich, tarry berry flavors in focus. Finishes pure and long, with supple tannins and impressive density. One of the best Giustos I remember at a similar stage of development: perhaps only the '01 was superior, but I wouldn't bet on it. (ID)
