Vinous: 91 points
Dark red. A strong note of violet complicates expressive aromas of plum, redcurrant, mocha, licorice and cinnamon on the knockout nose. Sweet, broad and juicy, with good weight to its red fruit and spicy licorice flavors. Finishes smoothly tannic and very long, with repeating violet and dark cherry nuances of exceptional purity and precision. One of the best Rossos of the vintage.
