A really beautiful wine in a great place. Probably starting its decline, slightly hinting at decreased vigor. Very floral, balanced and fruity. It avoids the mushroom notes that seem to dominate too many aged Sangioveses.

Peaking. Good energy for '97. Gained sweetness with air. After an hour open the warmth of the vintage really starts to show.

Like a beautiful barnyard floor: water - Manchester - stylish opaque mud. A great long punch of filth and class; brambles, dirt, and a kick of vanilla; like a touch of angelic sympathy on a day of solace. Coravined at Territoriet, Oslo.

Beats the heat. So fresh and crystalline.

Amazing nose cigar box and forest floor. resolved tannins and strong tertiary flavors of dried red fruit and tobacco. Maybe a year or two over the peak. Good wine with great friends.
