Review

Deep red, neither as bright nor as ruby as the Guiseppe and Louisa bottling. Deeper, more complex aromas of raspberry and strawberry preserves, roast coffee and mocha. Hugely rich but miraculously bright in the mouth; burnished, complex flavors are a bit less fruit-driven than those of the above. Finishes with big, tongue-dusting tannins. The Martinellis removed fruit four times in '98, eventually harvesting these vines at the end of October. Superb for the year.
