Wonderful spice and currant aromas to this young wine. Full-bodied, with super well-integrated, refined tannins. Long, caressing finish. This is very, very silky. Just like from barrel. Cos is on top of it now. Best after 2008. 17,705 cases made. Highly R —James Suckling
Intense aromas of violets, berries and spices follow through to a full-bodied palate, with layers of supersilky tannins and a long, long finish. Very, very classic in style. All in elegance and length. I like it better than the 2000. Best after 2009. Col —James Suckling

From southern Italy comes this bold and structured red. Dark color; black licorice, raspberry and mineral character with hints of dried flowers. Full-bodied, with spicy fruit and undertones of black pepper. Chewy finish. This is fantastic. Give it time. B —James Suckling
