Parker gave this a good (91) rating. I found it a bit hard and closed-in. It needs 2-3 years of age. It will be a 91 and is well-made and certainly worth the price. Incidentally, I found it in the half-bottle at Chiaroscuro Restaurant in SF, at about $40. We did not order it because we already had tasted what we bought and thought it has not reached its prime. We liked the restaurant very much. They serve wonderful gnocchi. The chef, Alejandro Campatelli, is from Rome. We told him the gnocchi were the best since we had lunch at the Caffe Pantheon in Rome.
I can see why it made the top 100. Can't find a better one to go with spaghetti or lasagna.
Opened wine and drank right away. Blueberries on the nose. Silky on the palate. Not heavy on oak or tannin.
