92 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2009

Good full, dark red. Deep, ripe, highly aromatic nose combines black raspberry, currant, tar and licorice. Big, rich and sweet but with firm balancing acidity: lots of wine here in spite of being a bit youthfully closed today.

This large-scaled vintage required a later bottling, noted Ratti, who initially found the tannins to be too hard and wanted to wait for a better balance. He bottled these at the end of August, compared to the spring of 2008 for his 2005s.
