1999 Riserva : Nose piercing aromas of ripe red fruit, tar, roses, and mint. Extremely firm with major league grip, classic red fruit and iron fist on the finish..

Still has nice balance of acidity & tannins, dried cherry & plums, lavender, cedar & touch of cinnamon.

Rose petals, violets, tar and dark cherries. It’s all there in the right proportions. I’d say it’s an ideal time to drink it. Will need a few hours decant.

Very mature nose, but young palate. Could have been topped up. In any event could use a few yrs to fully bloom. Very nice now.
