Chocolate coffee smoke licorice and tobacco characteristics are found in the complex deep purple-colored 1998 Sori Tildin. Surprisingly seductive for such a young wine it exhibits abundant aromatic fireworks fabulous fruit concentration a layered opulence more intensity glycerin and depth than the Costa Russi and a spectacularly long finish. Anticipated maturity: 2002-2025.

Wonderfully perfumed, with fresh raspberry, mineral and hints of tar. Full-bodied, with a racy tannin structure and a licorice, tar and berry aftertaste. Still very tight. But drinkable too.--1998 Piedmont blind... Wonderfully perfumed, with fresh raspberry, mineral and hints of tar. Full-bodied, with a racy tannin structure and a licorice, tar and berry aftertaste. Still very tight. But drinkable too.--1998 Piedmont blind retrospective (2008). Drink now. – JS

Restrained but pure aromas of currant plum menthol and roasted meat. Supple rich and seamless; less sweet and accessible today than the Costa Russi but already shows superb generosity of texture. Finishes with sweet building tannins and excellent length. This may well shut down in bottle. 93(+?) points
