93 Points | International Wine Cellar , July/August 2003

($80) Very dark ruby with a blackish core. Deep aromas of blackberry, cocoa and cinnamon fill the nose. Dense and exceedingly plush, displaying luscious dark berry flavors, with graphite appearing on the long finish. In spite of its formidable structure the wine maintains an admirable sense of balance.

Member Notes

this is a jammy csm.

A hot wine 14 degree alc. First alch. you feel. Next plenty of oak. Finally espresso, quite strong one. This bitterness should come from burnt grapes under 40+ celcius sun in August 2000. It is not different from a 10 USD jammy Cab.Exteremly low aciditiy. Should be consumed within 2 years.

The trademark of wines from Tuscany, and especially those from the region of Chianti, was once the fiasco. This straw-colored flask may carry associations of lengthy rustic meals out on the portico of a villa in the Tuscan countryside, but this romantic reverie must be interrupted with a burst of reality...
