Ricci San Leto (100% Timorasso) 2007 DOC 14% Piedmont (grey-blue label) Aged 18 months in 500 litre acacia barrels, must for this wine is free run from the oldest vines, instantly pressed off skins into barrel. Lees stirring is avoided. It displays smoky, honeyed-tea aromas and flavors. Full bodied, dense and concentrated, it is thoughtfully structured with fine tannins and light acidity. Offering an outstanding textural balance, for many this will seem to have an oxidative-like flavor they might not find appealing, but I’m told it is an accurate ‘aged’ varietal character for this grape. 45 mg/l Tasted April 2012 © www.winedisclosures.com
