ud boar points - Coated with unctuous linzer torte, warm plum sauce and pure cassis fruit flavors, while notes of maduro tobacco, mint, green fig and toasted anise flitter throughout. This is lush and dense, but well-harnessed through the finish, with a mouthwatering roasted apple wood note and lingering fresh acidity. Best from 2014 through 2030. 4,200 cases imported. –JM
CINGHIALE RATING 4.4
Bright Red with some purple. The most powerful wine of the day. Massive and generous. Tons of fruit and earth with leather, tar and even some tobacco leaf. Mouth filling and focused. Very complex wine that needed time to open up. A majestic, impressive full throttle wine that really was impressive once it got going. Lots of fruit but well balanced by fresh acidity and strong tannins. A wine to cellar and keep for a while.
