1998 Altare, Insieme, Piemonte, Italy

From a magnum bottle, not blind. Very dark colour and a compact nose with a certain amount of fresh herbs mixed with tobacco. After one hour in the glass some sweetnes emerged together with chocolate and licorice. But the "green" element from the Cabernet was still there....I actually like the taste better, maybe because the wine has such a mixed picture on the bouquet. The taste is powerful and very long with great fruit. (93)
