($50-$58; from 50-year-old vines purchased in 2003; aged in all new barriques Deep ruby color. Pungent aromas of blackberry and bitter chocolate. Sappy black fruit and integrated oak flavors sharply framed by penetrating acidity. This boasts lovely inner-mouth aromatic character and mineral energy from the limestone-rich soil. Finishes with substantial tongue-dusting tannins. The crop level was just 18 hectoliters per hectare, according to Rivetti. Drink this now with full-flavored meat or hold it for five years.Author: Stephen Tanzer
