Why are wines inherently more valuable when they don't go with any food but steak?
The Gran Selezione wines are, above all, supposed to represent the height of quality within each estate.
Not as elegant as I had expected, but perhaps understandable given the vintage. Very perfumy, with stewed fruits and tar leading from nose to palate. A twinge of crowbar would keep the blind taster in Piedmont, as would the tannins, which are still choppy and aggressive. Needs time.
