Dense and pliant in its first impression, the 2016 has plenty of muscle lying in the background. Iron, smoke, wild berry, hard candy, spice and sweet floral notes all develop. Time in the glass brings out a more aromatic side of the wine's personality to complete things very nicely. The incisive Ovello tannins naturally need time to soften, but all the elements are in the right place. -- Antonio Galloni collapse

Austere and a bit severe on the finish today, yet shows terrific balance and length. Best from 2022 through 2037. 200 cases made, 70 cases imported. — BS collapse

Dried peaches, rose petals and orange peel all make for a very fragrant impression. Medium-to full-bodied and velvety in terms of tannin texture, but with underlying chewiness. Real kick of acidity on the finish. Drink... expand Dried peaches, rose petals and orange peel all make for a very fragrant impression.
