One of the true greats. 2006 is looking to be an excellent year - this truly impressive combination of ripeness, acidity, and tannin. An intense ruby/garnet colour, concentrated notes of black currant along with smoke, leather, liquorice and a herbal presence of chopped mint and forest floor. A very progressive palate with a silky finish that lasts an eternity. A masterpiece in Italian winemaking which will only improve with age.
