Had the 2001 of this at a tasting recently and was wildly impressed, so I snagged some 99, 00, and all that I could find of the 01. Based on this 2000, the 99s and 01s will spend some more time sleeping. This wine is spectacular. Deep ruby color with no sign of fading at all. The nose explodes with aromas of leather, licorice, earth, tar, espresso, and toasted oak. Incredibly rich palate with all of the above, plus plum, wet leaves, and tea. Man, I really enjoyed this! Sorted tannins and a very long finish. I am loving this Italian producer...95 Pts
Blind tasting of five 95+ RP cab/cab blends. The bottles were double decanted 5 hours before drinking.
This is such a well make Tuscan beauty. It starts of with a wonderful herbaceous nose. On the palate, you get so many tastes of Tuscany (dried herbs, truffles, anise and dark berries). Good balance. Finishes long. Well done.
