The Riserva San Giuseppe 2013 is still a very young wine. It is a closed, brooding wine of dense structure and great longevity. As befits the vintage, its character shows cool-vintage flavors and aromas, especially black cherries, licorice and truffle, with distinct dark floral notes. On the palate, the wine is still tight and focused, letting little escape but showing all the necessary elements for a long cellaring and - someday - a long drinking window. The finish is extremely long and currently shows the young tannins that will soften and integrate with time.
