Drank this out at a rest. with winemaker Renato Vacca: more traditional nose than the 05 Albesani we tasted right before---violets and a touch of tar, laden with spices, surprisingly pliable, elegant tannins, late hint of maple syrup otn.
Tasted with the 2003. Very focused, balanced and overall a great effort in light of the vintage. Initially liked this better than the 2003 but as the night past and the 2003 opened up, this faded in comparison. Curious how this will develop over time. No rush on the other bottles in my cellar.
Really enjoyed this wine. Decanted for 1.5 hours. Served with homemade lasagne. Was a little closed until tasted with the meal. Great tanic structure with dark fruit. Buying more to give a few more years of bottle aging.
