1998 Le Macchiole, Scrio, Tuscany, Italy

Dark red and much more open than the 97-vintage. The licorice is more sweet and the vanilla and black currant is more apparent, more approachable but not so complex.You can sense more barrique here but the mineral is also here. More a bluckbuster than the 97'. (94)

Tasted May 2003
