Saturated deep red. Deep aromas of raspberry, plum, woodsmoke, flowers, tar and menthol. Rich, chewy and intensely flavored; at once seamless and nicely delineated, thanks to harmonious ripe acidity. A supple, aromatically complex wine that finishes quite spicy and long, with sweet tannins. Perhaps the smoothest and most accessible of Rivetti's '99s, but built to age.

Fascinating aromas of walnut, plums and crushed berries. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a long caressing finish. This is built for aging and is wonderfully harmonious. Best after 2006.
