2016 Valtellina Superiore DOCG Riserva Sassella "Ultimi Raggi", Lombardy, Italy

Very firm and deep, distinctly complex, fresh and precise, somewhat leathery and tobacco, also iodine-like scent of ripe, partly dried red and black berries with dried floral aromas, pepper, allspice and some Cheyenne pepper, dried mushrooms and a little undergrowth. Taut, concentrated, tart, yet exceedingly juicy fruit, present, ripe tannin and some acid bite, dense and persistent on the palate, tarry notes, a little tobacco, allspice and pepper, deep and complex, restrained power, still barely developed, a little cocoa and coffee in the background, herbal notes reminiscent of oregano and marjoram, soy, lots of salt, long, multi-layered finish with tart juice, spice and grip. Grandiose.
