$16CAD when purchased in April 2002.

From Basilicata

Decanted for 1 hour. Medium-garnet colour with a bit of bricking. Very perfumed nose of rose petals, violets, black olives, tar, and anise. Medium-full bodied with tar, violets, black fruits, and cedar. Dry, tarry finish, ~ 40s. Delicious. 89 points. (11/14/2003).

Served with pork tenderloin medalions, mashed potatoes with truffle oil, and a mesclun salad with balsamic vinaigrette.

I am curretntly drinking the 1997 Riserva (Vigna Caselle) by the same producer, which is delicious, but has a rather strong burst of acidity; it goes really well with food but on its own it is a bit harsh. It has this quite distinctive 'sour cherry' smell that I really like.
