"A beautiful wine now with with lightly brushed tannins and walnut, chocolate and dried berry character. It's medium to full body andvery fine, with a refined finish. Real finesse. Nice to find a riserva like this." - 94 points, James Suckling
- Colour: Inky ruby red, clear and consistent.
- Nose: Its aroma is very intense, full, and fine. Balsamic, almost iodine notes can be appreciated immediately, conveyed by the notable alcoholic strength. These then give way to the characteristic aroma of ripe cherries, plums, small woodland berries, spicy aroma of star anise, cinnamon, cardamom, black pepper, vanilla and ginger. Tertiary aromas of cocoa, chocolate, goudron, almond, toasted hazelnuts, and pipe tobacco.
- Palate: Dry, warm, and soft, well supported by a notable acidity, richness of flavour and rounded tannin content. Very persistent and fine balance. Certainly ready, a wine with strong shoulders that can stand the test of time.
- Corvina and Corvinone 70% - Rondinella 20% - Croatina 5% - Oseleta 5%.
