A deep amber with orange hues, the 1968 Vernaccia di Oristano Riserva comes to life slowly in the glass. At first, it’s dusty and dark with smoky wood tones, tobacco and brown spice. It blossoms with time, taking on notes of dried flowers, quince and spiced citrus. It’s deeply textural, almost creamy, yet balance is maintained through brisk acids that enliven its notes of baked apple and honeyed almonds. This is almost salty, as it finishes incredibly long with a nutty richness, resonating on hints of cacao and cinnamon. For all of its power, there’s a beautiful harmony to be found here. You could lose yourself in this wine. Wow. The 1968 Riserva spent 50 years maturing in chestnut barrels prior to bottling. (Eric Guido, Vinous, March 2021)
