"Saturated bright ruby. Multidimensional nose of cassis, blackberry, raspberry, violet, espresso, mint and spicy oak. Uncanny sweetness and lushness but harmonious acids give the berry and spice flavors great snap and verve. Hugely concentrated yet quite suave and light on its feet. Finishes with rich, dusty tannins and outstanding length." (Dec 2000)

"Proprietor Giorgio Rivetti's proprietary red, the 1998 Pin Monferrarto Rosso, is a blend of 50% Nebbiolo, 30% Barbera, and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon that spent 20 months in 100% new French oak. I have had mixed feelings about this offering in the past, but the 1998 is terrific. It boasts a dense ruby/purple color as well as complex, Bordeaux-like aromas of cedar and black currants, full body, moderate tannin, and excellent overall balance." (Oct 2001)
