I remember tasting the 1997 vintage of this Super Tuscan in 2000 and being wowed by the combination of richness and complexity presented in such an easygoing and approachable style. The wines are even better today and its great to have them back in stock. Aromas of cherry syrup, damp soil and roasted herbs zoom from this when first poured then ease into mid-palate flavors of blackberry and huckleberry. The wine is ripe, fat textured and generous with tons of upfront charm as well as a serious nature lurking underneath. Ripe and sleek tannins glide effortlessly on the finish where there is a big dig into the Tuscan soil. Decant this delicious wine today or cellar for 10 plus years.
