Does that mean that a wine does not reveal its unique identity until
it is fully mature?

In my view, the concept of maturity is a little bit misleading. What is
true is that the wine changes all the time during storage. Asking an old
vintner which was best - a young wine or an old one, he shrugged and told
me: Some love the daughter, others the mother...

Both have an unique identity... :-)

However - it is also true that many wines, notably red wines of some class
from Bordeaux or Italy, for instance, go through a phase of sleeping at
about 6-10 years of age.
