Terrific bright red fruits backed by anise. Cherries, earth, black tea and a field of violets are all restrained by huge but smooth tannins demanding cellar time or enthusiastic decanting. This is jut a baby, a declassified Barolo that will be approachable in half the time of its big brothers. Drink with truffled cheeses. Highly Recommended (92). DH

David Honig, the Publisher, looked at what was happening in the world of wine journalism and realized there were a lot of great writers out there at the same time paying publications, from newspapers to websites, were dropping like flies. So he created Palate Press to find the best writers and create a new forum for them to sell their best work. He is a self-educated oenophile, and defers to the tremendous experience and wisdom of the amazing staff at PALATE PRESS: The Online Wine Magazine.
