Of course the shift from a 41 year old extremely complex wine to 2001 Salvioni is noticeable. On the top of this – look at its flight rival (1983 Case Basse Riserva). With this in mind - it did extremely well. The fruit has a great deep feeling which is setoff from the combination of red and dark being matched up. This combination gives the wine its lovely sweetness and it’s just in the making and will be far better expressed in 10 years time. The taste still young, but has a good coolness on the tongue.
