89 Points | International Wine Cellar , November/December 2004

($40; aged in 70% new barriques for 12 months following fermentation in stainless steel, up from 50% previously) Red-ruby. Crushed red berries, black cherry, licorice, flowers, nuts, mint and spicy oak on the nose. Juicy, fruit-driven and nicely del ineated, with sappy acidity contributing to the impression of cut. The oak spice adds complexity but does not dominate the wine. Finishes quite juicy, with very smooth tannins. "We look for acidity and freshness in this wine, not overconcentration," notes Giacomo.
