Azienda Agricola Eugenio Rosi Red Bordeaux Blend Vallagarina IGT Esegesi 2005

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

from bottle but not yet released. This has a touch of VA on the nose adding lift to the fleshy, animal notes and bit of woodiness. Decidedly more funky and earthy than the 2006 on the nose, there is a striking resemblance in the mouth. This combines the bright acids of the ’06 with those some, very fine, sneaky tannins. The tannins here may be a bit more obtrusive than with the ’06 as they seem more wood driven and are a bit more drying. The fruit on the palate is vibrant and rich mixed berry pie that has admirable freshness and is dusted with earthen and spice tones. There is great focus here and the wine presents a fairly linear progression through the mouth and to the finish with a long, curranty finish that is richly spiced with notes of Asian 5-spice. Perhaps a touch less cohesive than the 2006 but still a wonderful success. (88-92pts)
