1995 Le Macchiole, Messorio, Tuscany, Italy

This is the fourth time I taste the 1995, but it’s been almost 6 years since my last visit. WOW – what a stunning nose. Plum, prunes, deep, fat lush cherries, dark fruits and really mysterious. After 20 minutes the prune note calmed down and being replaced by; spices, liquorice, forest and porcini mushrooms. As you can see this is seriously a multidimensional wine – let’s taste it. Ahhrrr it can’t follow the path of the nose – it get’s cut of half way to wonderland. Still very nice with superb extract, just not filling a full palate (95 pts)
