    The impossibility of three decades grace comes out of Carpineto's 1990, still youthfully dark and brooding, kept in place with all three eras intact; primary, secondary and tertiary all play together in this Montepulciano sandbox. Plums beget prunes, begetting raisins and then dug into the funghi and truffle of the earth. It's a porcini bend but also a tartufo shaved over red wine soaked risotto, starchy, creamy and silky smooth. Acidity still rules and if I were to compare this to the 1988 tasted in Montepulciano in 2017 I'd say this is easily five or perhaps even 10 years behind in its development. Hard to imagine a vintage getting better than this. I'd say 2010 and 2015 are closest. Drink 2019-2021. Score - 95. (Michael Godel, winealign.com, April 21, 2019)
