This opens with an intense black raspberry preserve note then takes on a redder, candied edge tot he fruits with smoky, medicinal nuances and a touch of seaweed creeping in. Rich, cound and bright in the mouth with zesty acids that support sour cherry fruit full of herbal top notes. The very ripe tannins are abundant makes this rich and chunky but not particularly elegant. 89pts

The light and elegant nose opens with an array of tobacco tinged nut meats and is a bit fresher than the 1971 though it lacks the intensity that wine offered. Ripe tannins frame a powerful, darkly fruited midpalate which picks up a bit too much nuttiness, seemingly revealing more oxidative notes than the nose would have indicated. Complex in the mouth though finishing a touch dry and shortish. I’ve had better bottles of this. 90pts

hort1978 is a legengary vintage in Piemonte and the wines retain great strength and youthful vigor. The vintage suffered from frosts in the spring and was warm and dry resulting in a small crop of small berries that produced wines of impenetrable power. Now mature and velvety this wine is a testiment to the quality of the vintage.
