This is a stunning proprietary red wine offering. Powerful, concentrated, and well-endowed is the dark ruby/purple-colored 1997 Cortaccio. Aromas of sur-maturite (over-ripeness, but in a positive sense) emerge from this wine. It offers notes of espresso beans, chocolate, and jammy cassis/blackberry fruit. It is extraordinarily fat and juicy, with oodles of glycerin and concentrated fruit, full body, silky tannin, and a finish that lasts for 40+ seconds. This is a terrific example of Cortaccio. Drink it over the next 10-15 years. Aug 2000, www.robertparker.com
