"A thick amber coloured wine with astounding depth and ferocity. Its intensely smoky bouquet reverberates with notes of raisins, dried figs and candied red fruit. Layered and immensely rich with a slow, lingering aftertaste."
"Elegance and balance are the key words for the 1998 Occhio di Pernice; a cooler year in Montepulciano regaled us with smoky, nutty aromas on top of the characteristic warm and enveloping structure of this wine."
Thanks to the natural oxidization process this wine goes through during ageing, its qualities remain intact for a very long time after the bottle has been opened, if tightly corked and stored in the refrigerator.
