Fully complete Rancia bottling; beautifully secondary with dried red fruits and figs. Slight pliancy keeps some of its sex appeal at almost 20 years

The nose was dark with woodsy floral tones offset by red berry, leather, hints of clove and star anise. It was soft with silky textures on the palate. Youthful but not tannic with perfectly balanced acidity enlivening flavors of tart cherry, spice, and minerals. The finish showed it's youthful structure with dried red fruits, inner floral tones and hints of cedar. This is beautiful and just entering what is sure to be a long drinking window.

Forest, dark berries and herbs. More fruit and some chocolate after a while. Very open and mature. Good tannin structure with a fruity finish. Medium body.

Well aged. Had to open as back up to Masciarelli Barbera. Great fruit and earth with impeccable balance.
