The wine is in no way heavy or flat. In fact, it feels infused with remarkable energy and zest. Black fruit, pipe tobacco, licorice and dried mint find perfect integration. In the mouth, the wine’s sheer power has been wrapped within a cloak of silky tannins. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2035. - Monica Larner

Blueberry, cocoa with hints of spice and cedar aromas. Full body, with firm yet polished tannins and a chili pepper, berry and plum character. Needs three or four years to soften. Cerequio made consistently balanced wines... Blueberry, cocoa with hints of spice and cedar aromas. Full body, with firm yet polished tannins and a chili pepper, berry and plum character.

The sweet cherry and raspberry flavors are augmented by tobacco, tea and briar notes in this medium-bodied, ripe and supple version, ending with a long, firm finish. Should come together in a few years. Best from 2016...

Bricky ruby. Aromatic intoxicating cherry liqueur nose. Dried and fresh cherry and a hint of leather. Firm, earthy, chewy and dense. Quite forbidding on the palate at the moment. Very very long. Just fresh enough. ... Bricky ruby. Aromatic intoxicating cherry liqueur nose. Dried and fresh cherry and a hint of leather. Firm, earthy, chewy and dense.

Good medium red. Superripe aromas of roasted redcurrant, strawberry and chocolate. Very suave and fine-grained, with a cooked strawberry flavor complemented by brown spices, chocolate and truffle.

Very suave and fine-grained, with a cooked strawberry flavor complemented by brown spices, chocolate and truffle. Finishes with big dusty tannins that turn a bit dry. Quite smooth but a bit riper than I prefer my Barolos. Perhaps not the best vintage for this site.
