A long-ager. Nearly matches... This is a big powerful red with loads of floral berry plum and truffle aromas and flavors. Full-bodied yet refined. It builds on the palate with lots of racy tannins and an ultralong finish. A long-ager. Nearly matches the amazing 1996 in quality. The best from Conterno this year. Best after 2010. 800 cases made.

Conveys a strong impression of soil tones. The longest of these 2000s finishing impressively chewy firmly tannic and palate-staining. Transcends the vintage. These vines were picked earlier than those used to make the basic Bussia Soprana wine.
