If @Cathy Corison made cab blends in Tuscany, they would be this great. Complex, begging for some age to strut. Gorgeous aromatics after an hour decant, followed by layers of dark and light red berry, asian spice, bridle leather and a hint of mint. Built to last (but no oak or vanilla to speak of), just silky tannins front to back. Outstanding. 20 years to go.

I have had the honour of tasting almost every vintage of Sammarco ever made back to the initial vintage (1980). There is no doubt in my mind that this might well be their finest effort so far. 96-97+ Hold until 2025 at least, as it’s structure promises to break very, very slowly. Think glacial pace.

Good wine, I just opened it 5-10 years to early.
Took 3 hours for the nose to open. Needs a steak 🥩
Cabernet, Sangiovese & Merlot blend.
