When our buyers first got a taste of this wine upon release, they were excited: "In March and April this year Anne P. and Mike G. and I traveled to Italy to taste the upcoming releases. News of the quality of this vintage had already spread and our anticipation was high, however we wanted to make our own judgment. Traveling at breakneck speed, thanks to the ease of racing along the Autostrada the kilometers began to look more like Lira, more zeroes than seem possible! Our first visit was to the Badia di Morrona, perched high on a ridge to the southwest of Florence this winery, rejuvenated in the 1990's, was pouring their incredible 1997 Super Tuscans! Old Vine Sangiovese is the heart and soul of the 1997 Badia di Morrona "VignaAlta" $29.99, incredible purity, chocolate cherries, spice, leather, truffles flow from the glass but the power and concentration of this "Super" vintage roll across your palate in lush, dense and powerful proportions. 10-15 years from now this wine will thrill you with its complexity but if you'd like to wade in now we suggest an hour of two in a decanter and hints of the future complexity will show itself, ripe and drinkable in your glass."
