Probably the best glass of wine I have had. Beautiful nose of dark fruit, a touch of leather, hint of rose petal, and earth. Fantastic freshness and acidity, medium + weight, bright fruit, cassis, soft oak, and firm tannins with a long finish. Just WOW! This wine should be even more spectacular in 2025 at 10 years. I am not aure if I can save one until then!

Used to make Osso Bucco e Risotto alla Milanese. Good sipper while the kitchen filled with aromes della roux.
