About

Rating:

93

Remarkably pretty and floral, the warm vintage 1996 Ciallabianco is a finessed and delicate effort with spearmint and almond custard suggestions embellishing ripe peach. It's soothingly round with a salty tinge and fresh acidity. A savory wave of pit fruits and green citrus tones settle on the palate. The 1996 tapers off with tension, long and staining yet still fresh and lightly structured. This is in a gorgeous place, and there is no fear of decline.
