Exactly what I expected from this great producer. The Brich Ronchi delivered on both the nose and the palate with roses, tar, leather, white truffle, and big, chewy tannins. Elegant, lovely and altogether in perfect balance with just the right touches of acids, tannins and weight. Velvety. Still very youthful after 8 years, this wine with its superb color and big tannins could go 8 more.
