($140) Good medium red. Less fruity and more closed than the Arborina, hinting at menthol and brown spices. Medicinal and tight, not showing the classic early sweetness of the cru but displaying plenty of tannic spine for aging. In comparison to this young wine, Altare's stunning 2004 Brunate was distinctly pinot-like in its silky texture and high-pitched red fruits and spices.
