Giving this a 9.4 as is but believe it could be a 9.6 with time. Amazing in its youth though!

Strawberries, smoke, tar. Exceptional now, but clearly more to come.

Loved the Gaja amidst this nice lineup. It was tar and roses. Biggest of the bunch in flavor and the oldest at same time. The Conterno changed a lot in the glass. Started out tasting like it was nearly over the hill. Quickly climbed back to a very enjoyable wine and then dipped down again pretty quickly all within a couple of hours. The Vietti duo was spectacular and even better the next day. Preferred Ravera as it’s taste matched the powerful aromatics whereas the Lazzaritos flavor was a bit subdued in comparison. Nitpicking to be sure. Can’t wait to have these again after some age.
