1995 Le Macchiole, Paleo, Bolgheri, Tuscany, Italy

(85% CS, 10% SG, 5% CF)

Much deeper fruit than the previous vintages. Saddle leather, smoke, blackcurrant, tobacco, but at the same time a bit backward. Taste is very nice, has lots of warmth and plenty of tannin bite, but somewhat dry in the closing of the wine. Almost every single wine I have recently tasted from the 1995 has been dry – and this is no exception (90)

Glass: Riedel Sommelier Bordeaux Grand Cru
Details: Paleo Vertical 1992-2002
