Description: Consists of 1 Magnum, 1.5L
Region: Italy, Piedmont, Langhe.
Score: 97 WS.
"Here's a wine that transcends cultures, regions and varietals. La T√Ęche in Piedmont? Rutherford Cabernet? Balanced, with the sort of ripe, clean, pure fruit that most wine lovers (and winemakers) would kill for. Focused, opulent and elegant, packed with lightly toasted, slightly petrollike aromas and loads of cassis and blackberry flavors. Very firm, so cellar." Wine Spectator, Oct 31, 1999
Notes: 2cm, Hand written notation on capsule, nicked, lightly bin soiled, lightly scuffed label.
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $475
