tremendouse power and yet so nubile at the same time. This wine has plenty of life in it so keep it in a corner for the next 5 years and then come back to it. Silky notes of dark and light red fruit, violets and leather in abundance with a good 45+ second finish

Dark ruby-garnet. Aromas of blackberry, coffee bean and meat. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a long, caressing finish. Big and racy. Still needs some bottle age.--1997 Italian blind retrospective.
