93+ Points | International Wine Cellar , November/December 2007

(bottled a month prior to my visit) Good brilliant full red with a hint of amber. Distinctly more primary aromas than the 2003: fresh cherry, raspberry, menthol, dried flowers and an exotic suggestion of orange zest that contributes to the impression of lift. Fresh and gripping, though quite closed, even a bit pinched, after the bottling. Thick with extract but quite light on its feet, thanks to bright acidity and lively mineral and minty elements. This boasts terrific inner-mouth energy and impeccable balance. The tannins are quite firm but not hard, and the finish shows superb persistence. I would expect this classic wine to merit a higher score with bottle aging. "Everything about this vintage was normal," said Mascarello. "The summer was normal, the mid-October harvest was normal, we made a normal quantity of wine, and the technical numbers were perfect." She told me the young wine was very much like the estate's 1998.

The latter two wines are mostly Nebbiolo, which as traditionally been blended with...
