Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, March 2013
Fresh and aromatic, this red is packed with sweet cherry, leather, clove and iron flavors. Fused to a bed of stiff, mouthcoating tannins, with a long aftertaste of sweet spice and mineral. Still a baby, but well-balanced... Fresh and aromatic, this red is packed with sweet cherry, leather, clove and iron flavors. Fused to a bed of stiff, mouthcoating tannins, with a long aftertaste of sweet spice and mineral. Still a baby, but well-balanced and beginning to develop. Best from 2015 through 2035. – BS

17.5+/20 Current release, because with less age the wine is deemed too austere to please, according to Signor Altare. Mid ruby with orange rim. Spice and dried fruit, and very compact too. Slowly some pretty pure cherry... 17.5+/20 Current release, because with less age the wine is deemed too austere to please, according to Signor Altare. Mid ruby with orange rim. Spice and dried fruit, and very compact too. Slowly some pretty pure cherry emerges. Compact on the palate too, and lots of minerals. Finely sculpted powdery tannic. Impressive balance, complexity, and very young. (WS)
