    96 Dark ruby-garnet. Decadent aromas of blackberry, mushroom and grilled meat. Hints of dried candied fruit. Full and supersilky, with seductive, opulent fruit character. It's so long and caressing. A thoroughly gorgeous bottle.--1997 Italian blind retrospective. Drink now through 2017. 12,000 cases made.

    91 Opaque ruby with dark garnet hues. Intense aromas of incense, nutmeg and cinnamon lead to flavors of blackberry, chocolate, espresso and vanilla. Densely structured, with palate-coating gauzy tannins and a decidedly mineral edge to the finish. Though it lacks the excitement of the best wines of the vintage, this is a fine offering from Frescobaldi Montalcino estate.
