I am finally understanding the value of the Noceto Riservas: let them age and give them plenty of air and you have a really fine example of the varietal. Glad I have more. This 05 has plenty of life left. Wonderful balance of the cherry fruit, acid to make it an excellent food wine, soft tannins and nice mouthfeel. Good value too.
Popped and poured, no decant needed. Smooth, sublime, tasty black cherry fruit. It disappeared too quickly at dinner, so I can't be more specific. Just glad I have more, and I'll be opening another bottle soon.
The quick & dirty: The wine is very good as always. Not as bright & fruity as last time, as the darker tones are coming through more. Nice integration & complexity. A little chalky on the mid-palate, but finishes nicely.
