Argiolas Angialis Sardinia 2009 87 Points

Bright, dark gold with coppery reflections, ripe style with tangerine and marmalade note, candied orange peel, perfume, not so clean overall, probably due to older barrels? But not TCA! Hints of botrytis and high alcohol (14.5%) evident, juicy, ripe texture, dessication character evident, lacks acidity and precision, extracted with phenolic richness, tad overworked as a style, now until 2020+
