Review

The year on the label is approximate. It's actually a blend of '67, '68 - which constitutes most of the wine - '69 and a little '65. It's now almost impossible to find a bottle and the last remaining ones are appraised at close to 3 million lire (approximately $1800). The color is definite brick-red with moderate concentration. The nose is extremely mature, with signs of oxidation and scents of walnuts preserved in spirits and tar. The taste reveals symptoms that the wine has entered the phase of decline, even though tannin is still present and the oxidized components are not completely prevalent. A collector's item - there were originally about 3000 bottles - that is in decline. If you happen to have a bottle, hold on to it as a souvenir: it will become precious.
