The 2004 D'Alceo (85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Petit Verdot) is even better. It is deceptively rounder and softer than the Sammarco in its expression of cassis, minerals, licorice and sweet, dark fruit. Despite the lushness of its fruit there is plenty of structure lurking underneath, and it will require significant patience before offering its finest drinking. It is one of the highlights of the vintage. 2014-2026.

Deeply pitched aromas of blackcurrant, violet, licorice, minerals and oak, along with a whiff of truffle. Enters lively and minerally, then turns broad in the middle palate, displaying terrific density of blackberry and dark cherry flavors. Wonderfully classy and vibrant wine with a seamless texture. The long finish boasts compelling subtle sweetness of fruit. This is consistently one of Italy 's best wines, and the 2004 is one of the top vintages for this bottling in recent memory.
