Less expressive on the nose than the Briccotto, hinting at ripe, musky plum, black raspberry, menthol and tobacco. Then smooth and sweet in the mouth, but with terrific energy keeping the red fruit and tobacco flavors fresh and primary. Sweeter and more elegant in style than the 2009, but this fine-grained, firmly tannic wine really shut down in the glass. Outstanding potential here. 94+

Pretty floral and cherry notes are grounded by iron, tar and tobacco elements in this beefy red, accented by a hint of oak. The tannins are aggressive yet well-integrated. Finishes long and spicy, with fine grip. Best... Pretty floral and cherry notes are grounded by iron, tar and tobacco elements in this beefy red, accented by a hint of oak. The tannins are aggressive yet well-integrated. Finishes long and spicy, with fine grip. Best from 2018 through 2030. — B.S.

Its texture is soft and enduring with sweet almond, toasted hazelnut, bright cherry, spice and tobacco. The young tannins require more time to soften and integrate. Drink: 2017-2032. - Monica Larner

A solid wine for the vintage with pretty fruit such as cherry and plum, as well as a light minerality. Full body with chewy tannins and a polished finish. Well-crafted young wine. Better in 2017.
