"Sadly, Sergio Manetti died during the 2000 harvest, so this was the first wine for which Martino took on the entire winemaking responsibility. It is dark, with a plummy colour and a broad, ruby rim. It was a very hot summer, so there was a little less extraction to avoid harsher tannins, and the nose is soft and approachable, with blackberry and cherry fruit, though a fine, jammy ripeness. There is a sweet earthiness on the palate of a lovely mouth-filling wine, with a slightly bloody, baked plum pie quality and a fine juicy mid-palate. There are hints of chocolaty depth before fresh lemon acidity cuts through, with hints of spices and tobacco." Tom Cannavan, Wine-Pages.com, Jan 2005
Provenance: The Bielle Cellar
Notes: Top shoulder, heavily chipped capsule, exposed cork (due to cracked wax).
