The 1996 one of the estate's best takes things to another level. It shows an outrageous well-delineated nose of fresh roses minerals and menthol followed waves of dark fruit and licorice flavors that are just beginning to show the signs of early maturity with exceptional freshness length and harmony. This opens beautifully in the glass taking on an almost Burgundian elegance. A wine to marvel over. It is hard to resist this now but it will be even better in another 3-5 years and age gracefully for another decade and probably more. 96+ points/drink after 2008.

Profound multidimensional aromas of cherry raspberry cassis lead pencil camphor mocha tobacco and exotic spices. Extremely rich and full in the mouth but with superb clarity of flavor and grip. A Barolo of great breadth and depth. Firm acids and rich spreading tannins are thoroughly buffered by rich fruit. Extremely long and lively on the back end. (Marc de Grazia; numerous importers) 95 points
