My favorite Planeta red wine is the 2000 Burdese (100% Cabernet Sauvignon). The new oak treatment is better integrated in this offering since the Cabernet, with its big, tannic structure and dense cassis fruit, adapts well to barrel treatment. This 2000 reveals classic tobacco and creme de cassis notes intermixed with hints of licorice and toast. Full-bodied, ripe, and concentrated, with sweet tannin in the finish, it requires 2-3 more years of cellaring, and should drink well over the following 12-14 years.
