A newer styled Brunello that was a departure from the Giocondo but boy was it nice. Loved it.

Sangiovese with a touch of Syrah? Regardless its drinking quite well.

2001 Valdicava Riserva Madonna Piano Nebbiolo. Drank at Reddwood. This wine was much bigger and more velvety than the Giacosa Barbaresco. I might have preferred this wine slightly. K didn't think this wine quite lived up to expectations.
