Tasting Notes

The 1995 Riserva was aged in Slavonian oak barrels for 3 years. It benefited from a long refinement in the bottle in the quiet and darkness of the historic bottle library at Tenuta Greppo.
Ruby red colour with light garnet hues, the Riserva 1995 is initially shy, almost mysterious, putting forth its aromatic complexity in an almost enigmatic fashion. It slowly opens and evolves, revealing great depth and a multitude of aromas: Withered roses, brandied cherries, citron peel, flint, sweet tobacco, dried aromatic herbs and many other scents seduce and gratify our olfactory perception. It is however on the palate that the Riserva 1995 reveals all the charm of a wine that has refined for many years in the bottle without losing the verve of youth while gaining in wisdom and balance. A true meditation Riserva.
