Prima Pietra 2007

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Dark and dense on the nose with an earthy core and leathery edges. This is fairly closed, showing off expensive French oak and pencil lead over black currant and brambly aromas. Big and powerful on entry, this is tight and filled with austere tannins. There’s bright if well integrated acidity here and a black hole of black currant and tea leaf fruit once you get past the wall of tannins. Woody and drying on the finish, the fruit does manage to squeeze out on the back end with lovely hints of black plum and blackberries. This will require significant patience. It’s a tough go right now and may prove to be too tannic for its own good. 88pts
