Rockss and Fruit

    (Castello di Rampolla Sammarco) If this is any indication 2003 is a freak-show vintage in Tuscany. The nose reminded me of a cross between the new wave Douro wine Zambujiero and some monster Barossa shiraz. Ripe to the point of pruney. Raisiny, port-like aromas of macerated black cherries and just a little bit of spice and mineral. Pretty sweet and ripe on the palate but still precise, pure and focused. This wine has a serious balancing act to do and pulls it off deftly. Long finish with some pretty serious tannin.
