Elegant and enchanting as always...I think I prefer Bosconia in this vintage for its soaring red fruit and herbal aromatics and perfect synthesis of sweet, savory, floral and rustic elements.

Dirt with a capital “D” - soft and well balanced sour cherries great funk! Nice and lively acidity!

Nothing to complain about here. Structure, balance, and more life ahead. Drinking beautifully with filet mignon or on its own. Tobacco and leather meet earthy, stewed fruit and ripe tannin.

2005 released in 2017 (12 years aged). This is a gem of a bottle, slightly musty and dusty with dried figs and cherries, mild hint of spice. Medium-bodied and well balanced, lovely long finish.
