1996 Podere Poggio Scalette Il Carbonaione Alta Valle della Greve IGT - Italy, Tuscany, Alta Valle della Greve IGT (2/15/2011)
Nose of cherries, bit of cedar wood, rustic spice. Palate has a nice tartness at first, very smooth, medium bodied, good fruit. Hint of tannic structure at the end. This is beautiful and exactly at peak. The structure of this wine is stellar.
Update: With some air (1-2 hours) gets even better, with a rich complex nose and more texture to the palate. Lovely. (93 pts.)

This bottle was superb, a step above two bottles I had about two years ago. I have one left and will pop it towards the end of this year.
