NOI4, Bolgheri DOC
Taut and linear in profile, its black currant, plum, cedar, loam and tobacco flavors fused to the spine of tannins. It ends with a pleasant astringency. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2022 through 2033.
The 2017 Noi4 is a bold, exuberant wine that shows the natural intensity of the year in its racy, exotic personality. A rush of black fruit, espresso, licorice, leather and dark spice fleshes out in the glass. Today the tannins are a bit imposing. A year or two of bottle age and/or a healthy decant will help.
