I love this wine. More usually than the ronchi. The '96 is no exception. Beginning its late adolescence or even young adulthood.

Excellent. Still showing the tannin of 99', this wine has many years ahead of it.

I was a little disappointed by the bottle, I think it was a little over the hill. The fruit and tannins were still pretty good but the acidity was waning so it didn’t have much structure/complexity. Could’ve just been the bottle.
