The 2004 Velletri Terre Dei Volsci Riserva, available in the general section, is medium to full bodied, sweet wine that has appealing notes of prune, bilberry, black cherry, caramel, oak and cut hay. It's still pretty fruit forward, yet on the integrated side, has refined tannins and a medium finish. It can easily age for another 5 years and will most likely evolve nicely. My impression: NICE. Tasted Feb/10 and again in Nov/10 during Italian wine tasting where it was generally well received.
The 2005 Velletri Terre Dei Volsci Riserva is a medium bodied, aged wine, with appealing aromas of strawberry, raspberry and leather. Tannins are refined to tannic (decant for 30 min) and the finish is medium. Drink this food friendly wine now and for the next couple of years. My impression: NICE, 88 pts. Aug/12.
