Valdicava:
Here in Montalcino the opulence of the Sangiovese grape, more than any other place in Tuscany, has lead to a darker, deeper, and more concentrated wine. At our precise latitude of 43 degrees, the warmth of the nearby Tirrean Sea, the protective barrier of the "Monte Amiata", the coolness of the wooded areas, the breeze and moderate rainfall all coincide to facilitate the growth of these grapes ...

Here in Montalcino the opulence of the Sangiovese grape, more than any other place in Tuscany, has lead to a darker, deeper, and more concentrated wine. At our precise latitude of 43 degrees, the warmth of the nearby Tirrean Sea, the protective barrier of the "Monte Amiata", the coolness of the wooded areas, the breeze and moderate rainfall all coincide to facilitate the growth of these grapes to fragrant, full maturity. VALDICAVA is located in the Montosoli area which is famous in Montalcino for creating wines with great balance of body and aromas. We pay the utmost attention towards maintaining the individual characteristics of our wines in order to exalt the spirit of the place, the 'genius loci' of our estate. Read less

Had a bottle of this vintage last week. It is other worldly at the moment. My only concern was the state of the bottle as I got it at a small enoteca that I know has changed hands. It was a terrific price so I splurged on several bottles of different vintages. The 2000 is the first one I have openend and it was fantastic. Easily one of the top 10 bottles I have ever had. Intense black cherry dominating fruit, incredibly smooth, powerful and huge. No doubt has plenty of gas left in the tank. If anything I think this is an under rated effort from what was not a great vintage for the area - but this is a killer bottle of wine.
