Round and spicy with cedar, berry and fresh tobacco aromas and flavors. Medium- to full-bodied, with fine tannins and a long finish. Beauty. Best after 2008. 1,150 cases made. From Piedmont, Italy. —James Suckling
Very pure and focused, with its grapefruit, apricot and mineral flavors getting support from a lively structure. It's certainly rich, yet maintains more of a classical profile for the vintage. Excellent length. Drink now through 2020. 400 cases made. From —Bruce Sanderson
Subtle and refined with plum, berry and strawberry aromas with just a hint of spice and cedar. Full-bodied, yet racy and refined with layers of silky tannins. Long finish. Should develop very nicely in the bottle. Best after 2008. 700 cases made. From Pie —James Suckling
Wonderful aromas of flowers and ripe fruit that turns to undertones of Indian spices. Full-bodied, with chewy yet round tannins and a long exotic fruit aftertaste. Hard not to drink the whole thing. Wonderful. New winery for me. Best after 2007. 450 cases —James Suckling
Not much aroma, then the flavors kick in on the palate, exuding apricot, orange, lemon and vanilla cream. Very concentrated, this tastes like a botrytis selection. It's impressive, if lacking a little in finesse. Best from 2006 through 2025. From Germany. —Bruce Sanderson
