Good full red. Highly nuanced nose melds redcurrant, menthol, truffle, marzipan, dried flowers and spicy oak. Then sweet, creamy and surprisingly open-knit, with very good depth and complexity to the flavors of strawberry and dried flowers. The floral quality and an herbal element give lift to this very fresh wine. Rivetti told me he carried out three green harvests in 2005, which allowed him to bring in fully ripe fruit before the damaging early October rains. - Stephen Tanzer
