A friend showed up at our Friday spot with 1/3 of the bottle left after dinner. How they didn't finish it was beyond me but I'm grateful they didn't. It was surprisingly youthful. The fruit was alive and well. Had a nice touch of mint to it as well. This wine has a long life ahead of it. Not surprised it's considered among the best if not the best they ever produced.


Are you referring to the '85 or '88?


While the 85 is generally regarded as the best, my friend who spends a couple weeks in Tuscany, Piedmonte etc every year for the 15 years or so has found that many people there prefer the 88. That's why he hunted some down
