1997 Antichi Vigneti di Cantalupo Ghemme

The fruit has started to fade into the background, allowing secondary flavors and aromas to come to the fore. Violets and licorice blend seamlessly with cherry, followed by licorice and a touch of tar on the mid-palate. The mouth-feel is full and tooth-coating. This is available on retailers’ bargain tables for as little as $15-20, and is well worth it.
