Volpi Cabernet Sauvignon 2008

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Dark fruit, black plum, clay, old wood, toast, a hint of dried chili, smooth, soft but with pretty good tension, lovely purity to the fruit, framed gently with some rustic earthiness but plump. Pure and fresh, tannins are very supple, the backend shows rich aromatic plum and cocoa notes, very precise finish, focused and fairly long, really nice persistence of fruit, wonderful texture where the cab is perhaps a little too lean this has just the right plump edge, yet without any stickiness or overt viscosity, 87pts
