Very elegant nose, almost burgundian, but still with some of the typical Spanish ink. Some mushrooms and forest floor as well. Medium body, again very elegant mouthfeel with refined finely grained tannins, almost melted away. Very nice now!
Naso espressivo ed ampio, frutto rosso succoso e dolce, macchia mediterranea, spezie dolci, qualcosa di terroso e minerale. Bocca avvolgente, succosa, ampia e fresca. Molto lungo e saporito. (Alla cieca scambiato per un gran sangiovese).
Stunning wine, drank with some very knowedge-able wine friend. We drank next to a 1959 Unico - a memorable experience. The wines were remarkably similar, the 59 still youthful and full of fruit. With the 59 as a guide, this wine will only get better with age.
Other wines for the night were - 85 Heitz Martha's, 87 Grace Family, 98 Bryant.
