Levels of Greatness/ I think the best wines in the tasting were at the Col d'Orcia table. The new super-Tuscan Nearco is outrageous.
/ Aromas of plums, earth and spice follow through to a medium-bodied palate, with good fruit and a fresh finish. Silky. Refined. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah.
The Oeno File - Great reds at hand/ the color is dense, dark red with violet highlights. Spicy fruait and forest berries with notes of cloves and vanilla. A beautifully balanced and elegant palate. Poerful tannins will soften as the wine ages in bottle. long finish. This is one of the Supertuscans and promises great pleasures to the patient wine lover.
The Oeno File - Best wines tasted in 2006/ From Sant'Angelo in Colle. A blend of 50% merlot, 30% cabernet sauvignon, 20% syrah. Color: dense ruby with violet highlights. Aromas: plums, a hint of chocolate, cloves, vanilla and saddle leather. Palate: full body, with good fruit and well-structured tannins. Impressively elegant with multidimensional flavors and a long finish. Worth cellaring.
Levels of Greatness/ The Consorzio del Vino Brunello di Montalcino showed off the wines of over 40 Brunello producers. There were too many wines plus a few grappas to taste within a few hours, but I made a valiant effort. But I think the best tasting were at the Col d'Orcia table. The new super-Tuscan Nearco is outrageous.
/ The 2002 Nearco, is a blend of 50% Merlot, 30% Cabenet Sauvignon and 20% Syrah. An almost inky black wine with dark violet hues. Aromas of vanilla, mint, figs, and black currant. Full-bodied with plums, dried cherries, vanilla, spice and violets on the palate.
