($33; for 1.5 liters; bottled entirely in magnums in early September) Full, glass-staining ruby-violet color. Pungent aromas of blackberry, cassis, violet, mint and charred oak, with suggestions of liqueur-like exotic fruits; reminded me a bit of California cabernet. Then incredibly rich and sappy, with almost painful intensity of black fruit, espresso and bitter chocolate flavor. Still youthfully raw but has superb fruit. Initially showed very good though not outstanding length, but grew longer and brighter with aeration. Ultimately quite strong on the back. This is 14.95% alcohol, says Voerzio, adding that the '98 Pozzo was 15.2%. (Winebow, Inc., Hohokus, NJ)
