Medium-dark clear ruby color; nose of ripe blackberries, dark cherries, raspberries, garden spices, anise; fairly high alcohol and acid, dry, small firm tannins, long elegant finish in a very typical BdM style. I went all-in on the -15s and -16th so my supply of -14s is limited. This one a winner! đŸ„‡

Medium Ruby with fragrant berry fruit, spice and floral notes. On the palate red berry flavors, with licorice, spice, pepper and earthy mineral feel. Fine soft tannins, medium+ savory finish ending with a mushroom cedar and mineral character. Nice! Good now!

Although a stellar vintage, this wine seems to be slightly past peak as judged by two different bottles stored impeccably. Hard to believe really.

We have tried this several times before and are struck by the thin-ness of this vintage, both on the nose and palate.

Bold, powerful, spicy with flowers and mint. Full throttle and delicious.

Mörka körsbÀr, plommon, subtil ek, örtkompott och en nÀve fuktig jord. Allt snyggt pÄ plats. Hade sÀkert kunnat legat lÀngre, men varför?

The first whiff reveals an elegant nose of small red cherries, spices, wildflowers, tea, and strong mineral notes; structure is robust (alc on high side, tannins fine, acid high) but with finess; the finish is long with a moderately oaked touch. Likeylikey! But way too young, this great -10 vintage will probably need a decade more to come out. The -10 Silvio Nardi and Col d'Orcia are more evolved and full-bodied, this one lighter and more elegant.

Deep Ruby with big Berry fruit aromas with earthy notes. The palate shows strawberry, raspberry and black cherry flavors with a woodsy forest floor, brambles and mushroom character. The wine is full-bodied with high acidity, fine tannins and dried herbs, leather and tobacco on a long chewy finish. Tasting Sample.
