Wow, couldn't be more different than the bottle I had five years ago! That's Pepe for you. If anything, this is even fresher and brighter, with a piercing acuity and powerful aromatics that don't really qualify as a scent so much as a vertiable stench. A good part of that is sulfur but there's plenty else going on besides.
Better than the last bottle but nothing like the wine I had in Venice. Deep yellow color with beeswax, acacia and oxidized aromas. Fresher in the mouth with somewhat oily, nicely extracted fruit. This wine was a bit oxidized but actually improved over the course of the meal.
