92(+?) Points | International Wine Cellar , September/October 2003

($83; a blend of aglianico and piedirosso) Bright ruby-red. Smoky, roasted nose features cherry pit, tobacco, iron, lead pencil, currant leaf, creosote, menthol and pine resin; smells a bit like Haut Brion. Then dense and powerful in the mouth, with pungent, oaky dark berry flavors complicated by tar, tobacco, resin and smoke. A superconcentrated, extremely wild wine with a rather claret-like texture, powerful soil character and strong, slightly bitter hints of oaky torrefaction. The huge, very long and thoroughly untamed finish features big, chewy tannins and notes of dark berries and dried herbs. I was somewhat put off by this wine's bitter oakiness and impression of strong extraction but was impressed by its vibrancy. (Winebow, Inc., Hohokus, NJ)

Low 90's, four out of five stars.....that's it? In my book this is a stunner from front to back, a not-to-be missed world class red that sets the bar for Southern Italia. Terroir-ific athleticism! The Haut Brion of Campania? Tried on four seperate occasions, amazing each time, a dead ringer for euphoria. Some of my swilling pals who have joined me in the samplings think it exceeds Parker's 98 pts., and I just might be inclined to agree. Shame that limited availability and market demand has pushed the price from its release @ approx. $90 to more than $200, if you can find it. The 2001 recently made it to our shores - can't wait to savor the next generation.

About Italy

Italy, like France, offers a world of wine styles within a single country: dry Italian white wines ranging from lively and minerally to powerful and full-bodied; cheap and cheerful Italian red wines in both a cooler, northern style and a richer, warmer southern style; structured, powerful reds capable of long aging in bottle; sparkling wines; sweet wines and dessert wines.
