1995 Podere Poggio Scalette Il Carbonaione
Long one of favorite wines of Italy or anywhere else for that matter. This wine did not let me down
A dark and opaque color with a ripe and rich nose. Some nice roasted herbs hinding behind a full dose of black currant also on the nose.
On the palate this wine has a full and rich feeling without being heavy or creamy. Smooth! I got so many different taste out of this wine over a two hour window. Ripe sweet fruit, herbs (dried) light cedar, toast, hint of tar, earthy mid-palate with mouth watering acidity.
Just a great world class wine IMHO. No need to rush. I feel it is only getting better. Five more years in the cellar might reward even more.
