"Bright ruby-red. Complex, very refined aromas of blueberry, raspberry, violet, fruity peppercorn, licorice, and orange zest. Pure silk in the mouth, with enticing soil-driven salinity and harmonious acidity lifting the red and blueberry flavors. The long, pure, suave finish goes on for minutes and offers lingering spicy, herbal and floral elements. A knockout wine that is all about finesse and thrust, not just power and flesh. Drinking window: 2018-2032. 95 points

The following wines were tasted at the Ronchi di Cialla estate in November 2016. All bottles were sourced from the estate cellar except for the 1982, 1990, 1994, 2008 and 2009 which came from my own cellar, from where they had not moved since the day I bought them upon release. In what amounts to another Vinous first, the following report is the most complete vertical tasting of Schioppettino Ronchi di Cialla presented in a major English language wine publication."
