This is the diplomat of this triumvirate and damn, holy it is. Mid-weight, crunchy and melding the red berry sass of the Ruscello plot with the herbal spine of the Il Giardino and its whole-cluster drive. This is infinitely long, etched with tannin, extract and sex appeal. Refined. Gorgeous. Length pushes the score. These single-plot Pinots are among the finest of the country, demanding serious attention.

It’s the length that defines this wine, and yes, there’s plenty of that. Dark cherry, spice, subtle earthiness, flowers, and perhaps it’s subliminal, but crushed rock is a big part of the style. It has a Barbaresco character, though it’s identifiably Pinot Noir, though I offer that comment because the structure of it is top shelf, and serious. Raspberry and red cherry, freshness and energy, with an intensity and aforementioned length that’s second to none. Superb.
