Tasted Dec. 2005: Spectacular! Deep inky color, with a big Bordeaux like aroma. Lush on the pallate with soft tannens and a 45 second finish. One of the best wines I have tasted this year. (98)
minerals,ink,herbs and lead pencil, dense, very concentrated, tannins are covered by huge amounts of glycerin and pure fruit and a finish that goes on and on; an incredible demonstration of cabernet planted in tuscany.
TN Rampolla, Vigna d'Alceo, IGT, Tuscany, Italy, 1999 (double blind): Black purple, fat tears, tints severely the glass. Cautious nose, cool moss. Full body but not fat, bit smoked dark fruit but not obtrusive, good acidity behind and massive silky tannins. Very long finish, dark berries and velvety smoky tannins. Score: 50 + 5 for optic + 13 for bouquet + 18 for taste + 8 for overall = total score of 94. Nearly as dense as a top 2001 Douro red only with less prominent fruit in the taste
