It exhibits a dark ruby color along with a big sweet nose of dried herbs cedar tobacco tar and red fruits. Opulent on the attack with moderately high tannin as well as good underlying acidity this is a fragrant effort for Giacosa. Anticipated maturity: 2006-2020.

Very sweet but vibrant nose combines cherry redcurrant marzipan brown spices and a whiff of game. Wonderfully sweet and sappy in the mouth with perfectly integrated acidity giving the wine compelling vinosity. Lifted by a strong floral perfume. Finishes with firm fine tannins and terrific length. Another '98 with a near-perfect balance of fruit and acid. 92(+?) points

Refined red. Plenty of berries and roses on the nose. Medium-bodied with fine tannins and a pretty berry and leather character. Rather chewy finish. Best after 2005. 1100 cases made. (JS)
