Earthy nose coffee, blackberry. On the palate coffee, brown sugar, black fruit, occasional gamey quality, long finsh. Far better than the 1995 on every measure; drinking well now and will improve with time. Great stuff; my second favorite of the night
Initially the hints of cassis give this wine a Super Tuscan feel but on the second sip the ripe fruits of the Piedmont soon start pouring forward. Each year this wine becomes more harmonious, a bright, silky wine with a lush texture. The tannins provide a super finish. Simply beautiful. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2031. (SN 09/07)
So young. Concentrated. Felt unbalanced without food; smoke, licorice, tannins. The lamb tempered the size of the wine and revealed its potential. The 1989 was preferred almost unanimously at the table. however the majority saw great potential in the 2001. I believe that this vintage will be a good investment for the future. Interestingly , Angelo Gaja stated that after this run of great vintages, they have sold all of their crop from 2002 and will likely sell all of their 2003 crop. (92-95)
Stunning nose of strawberries, blackberries with some spices and dark cherries. Mid-full body wine of a complex structure with great rounded tannins and a fresh, clean and super long finish. Very impressive wine. The 2001 vintage was a stunner and this wine is improving. Decant for several hours.
I've had this wine on two separate occasions and it has been outstanding both times... I highly recommend treating yourself if you have the opportunity.

Wine Spectator Gorgeous aromas of blackberries and ripe strawberries follow through to a full-bodied palate with fine tannins and a clean fresh finish. Very round and ripe tannins. Lovely wine. Best after 2008. 5 800 cases made. Score: 93. James Suckling February 28 2005.
