92 points Antonio Galloni's Vinous - Vivid red. Powerful, mineral-accented red and dark berry preserve aromas are complemented by exotic spice and potpourri nuances. Fleshy and appealingly sweet, offering energetic black raspberry, cherry and candied rose flavors underscored by an energizing mineral flourish. Shows impressive energy and floral lift on the pliant, spice-tinged finish, which is framed by smooth, well-knit tannins. 25% whole clusters and 30% new French oak.
