1998 Tenuta di Trinoro, Palazzi, Tuscany, Italy

Incredible sweetness emerges from the very first glass of the night. Blackberries and blueberry mixture, exotic spices, marzipan, kirsch liqueur and vanilla. The taste is at first dry and my first thought was “ahhh not that nice – too dry and too light” – but then it adds a final touch of mineral bite back. And - when tasting it again and knowing this secret weapon it suddenly balances itself and a lot of elegance is added to the wine. Nice start. (93)
