Italian term or phrase: vino rosso molto di tenuta
Do we have any wine experts out there? Does anyone know how we would describe a wine that is "molto di tenuta", or if there is a enological glossary around?

a red with good structure and excellent prospects
Explanation:
"Tenuta" refers both to the balance and structure of the wine now and to its cellarability (i.e. the likelihood that it will improve with age).
