Expert Reviews

90 Points | International Wine Cellar , March 2010

($50; this is a partnership involving Berta, Braida, Chiarlo, Coppo, Prunotto and Vietti) Bright, deep ruby-red. Aromas of crushed blackberry, licorice, chocolate and menthol, with a suggestion of roasted fruit. Big, sweet and stuffed with chocolatey dark fruits. Very ripe in the style of this hot year but not acid-deficient. Really spreads out to coat the palate on the back end, finishing with plenty of dusty tannins and a hint of dried fruits. Needs to be served with the right foods, such as braised lamb shanks with Moroccan spices or pomegranate molasses-glazed game birds. (Folio Fine Wine Partners, Napa CA)
