Brought a magnum to a restaurant with some friends. We had an amazing meal, and this bottle of wine was also amazing. Dark fruit, lush tannins, and a long finish. Nicely structured and balanced. It is drinking wonderfully now, and has plenty of time left on it. Wish I had more. :(
2004 Ampeleia Ampeleia Costa Toscana SuperTuscan Blend (view label images)
Deep ruby in color. Sour cherry/raspberry on the nose, that carries over to the palate. Medium bodied, acidity and tannins are nicely integrated. A nice bottle of wine that is certainly fresh in character to me.

A beautiful bottle of wine. Very elegant, nice, medium bodied wine. Bright red berries on the nose, that carry onto the palate. Also an element of minerality on the palate.

I'm not left thinking that there's going to be a lot of aging potential with this wine, but I'm also fairly new to CdP and haven't had one around long enough to see how it'll evolve. This was an Outstanding wine, but I'll forgo placing a numerical value to it.

The nose on this wine is incredible. I pick up earthen tones with hints of berry. Medium bodied with a nice finish. Doesn't seem past its prime. Can't wait to try this one again in the future. Seems to be drinking quite nicely right now.

Had this with some friends when we were out for dinner, so didn't take notes. This was an incredible bottle of wine. A full,thick, rich wine with a long finish. Would have been better with a steak, but it did quite well with the sushi (I picked the place to eat, my friend picked out the wine). This should be great for years to come.

This is arguably the best pinot noir I've had (typically not a pinot fan, but it's growing on me). Fruit on the nose, silky, with a nice, full body. As it opened, more earthen notes. I think this will age for years to come.
