Feudi di San Gregorio Aglianico Irpinia Serpico 1999
"Red Wine Italian Red by Feudi di San Gregorio from Southern Italy, Italy. The 1999 Taurasi Riserva Piano di Montevergine cranks up the intensity level by many notches with its potent, penetrating raspberry and blackberry nose, mineral and tarry, and a packed, weighty, super-solid palate whose tannins are just beginning... "
Very good. But after drinking some much nebbiolo lately I thought that this lacked the complexity of nebbiolo. Will hold the remaining bottle for a few years.
[venison] Deep violet color. On the nose huge ripe red and dark fruit, tar, and minerals. On the palate, intense raspberry, blackberry; long smooth finish. Approachable now though with significant life remaining. Actually preferred to the Serpico from a few nights earlier. Will purchase a few.
