98 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - October 2013

(6 g/l total acidity; 3.45 pH; 27.7g/l dry extract; 12.25% alcohol):  Garnet-tinged medium red.  Vibrant aromas of raspberry, sour red cherry, tobacco and mint are complicated by an intense minerality.  Juicy, perfumed and highly concentrated, showing wonderful precision and amazing inner-mouth energy to the red fruit and chocolate flavors.  Creamy-sweet but with nicely integrated acids, finishing extremely long, smooth and perfumed, with fine-grained tannins.  This is still amazingly youthful, and a paragon of balance.  In my experience, only the 1958 (though the 1961 is pretty good too) comes even close to this memorable wine, but I haven't had those two icons in some time.

About Italy

Italy, like France, offers a world of wine styles within a single country: dry Italian white wines ranging from lively and minerally to powerful and full-bodied; cheap and cheerful Italian red wines in both a cooler, northern style and a richer, warmer southern style; structured, powerful reds capable of long aging in bottle; sparkling wines; sweet wines and dessert wines.
