@delectable Quarantadue means 42 in Italian. This is the 45 which is quarantacinque. There is another wine called quarantadue 42 but this is not it.

For those of you who are not drinking rattalino you are missing out big time. This is one of the more mammoth wines. Nose is black cherry tar and a hint of rose. Super complex. Palate is just starting to shift from young vibrant fruit to darker fruit with leather. Still has great balance. Long. Grippy. Great structure. A big dense wine but a balanced one. Some rose juice on the finish. Wow. Bought from fass selections.

Awesome texture. Great licorice. Clear cherry fruit. Great acidity. Nice internal aromatics. Still young with dry Tanins on the finish. Better in a few years but nice to drink now. Bought from Fass Selections.
