A gorgeous, captivating wine, the 2006 soars out of the glass with the most exotic display of amarena cherry, leather, sweet pipe tobacco, lavender, spice and amaro herbs. It is the sort of very rare wine that captivates all the senses, from the intellectual to the most hedonistic. Time in the glass brings out seemingly endless layers of floral and spice inflections. More than that, the 2006 is a rare wine that constantly develops in the glass, showing myriad layers of dimension as time passes, almost without notice. There are a few wines in the world that are more than just wine, they represent the history of a family, a place, an appellation. This is one of them.
