95 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - September/October 1998
Deep red-ruby. Sappy, minerally, three-dimensional aromas of redcurrant, iron, and iris, plus an intriguing vegetal nuance. Thick flavors of smoke, minerals and iron filings. Initially showed slightly green acidity but the fruit exploded with aeration and the wine appeared to grow riper and riper. Really stuffed with chocolatey-ripe fruit of steel. Very long. This was even better after 24 hours in the open bottle. A great Unico, perhaps just behind 1970 and 1968 in sheer material, but at least as fine.
