($295; just three barrels made due to hail) Good bright medium red. Musky aromas of raspberry, cedar and brown spices, with tobacco and mineral nuances adding complexity. Silky on entry, then minerally and firm in the middle, with racy acidity framing the flavors of tobacco and brown spices. Finishes with serious mouthcoating tannins that are less soft than those of the Cerequio but not quite as strong as those of La Serra. "This wine was ready to drink at the beginning but may be shutting down today," notes Davide Voerzio, who describes 2005 as "a good year that lacks a bit of structure and grip."
