Continuing with the Italian theme..... This is a Cabernet blend with Merlot and a small amount of Aglianico. 2002 was not a good vintage in most parts of Italy but this showed well. Less mint and more savoury herbal notes - some black fruits. Campania being further south and warmer than Bolgheri, home of the Super Tuscans. Sweet warm fruit. A good effort for the year.

Cabernet from Campania, typically around 50-70% with Aglianico and Merlot making up the balance. In 2004 the cepage is 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and 10% Aglianico. One of the icon wines of Italy, Montevetrano can sometimes fly under the radar, known less to the mainstream crowd of wine drinkers but those that do know it love it. The best part is that Montevetrano has its own expression entirely, it does not try to be one of the other thousands of Bordeaux or Napa wannabes. Judicious oak, ample acidity, good fruit an mineral presence. Not to mention it is 12 years old and is just starting to show some tertiary notes. The color is pristine, a deep ruby red. #montevetrano

You have to like green pepper notes to like this wine! Good dark fruit richness and lots of freshness for '96, but also a bit one dimensional.

Very good. So yummy. Especially with some hot sausage, meatballs and pasta. Smooth elegant BlackBerry, plum, cassis, and subtle dusty leather flavors.
