Intense licorice, blackberry, mineral, sandalwood and flowers on the nose. Full-bodied, with silky, superpolished tannins that turn to a butterscotch, toffee, berry and chocolate aftertaste, which has just a hint of meat and spice. Tannic and powerful, yet balanced. Best after 2012. 1,335 cases made. —JS

Wine Spectator TOP 100 2005 n.14, 94 pts.
Tenimenti Luigi d’Alessandro, Syrah Cortona Il Bosco 2003*

Powerful aromas of crushed black fruits, pepper and wet earth; just a hint of roasted meat.Full-bodied, chewy and rich, with a long, long finish.
