Wine tasting note: 1999 Le Pupille Poggiovalente Morellino di Scansano DOC

1999 Le Pupille Poggiovalente Morellino di Scansano DOC

5th May 2001 Tuscany Table Red

Deep, intense purple/red, opaque almost to rim.
A stunning wine, from the first impact of the nose (red fruits and iron) through to the long, long, long finish. Sweet, intense and inky with flavours of blackcurrants, plums and mulberries layered with tobacco and bitter oak. Quite fierce tannins underneath all that fruit.
Utterly gorgeous now but it really needs another 10 years or so.
Fine Wine.
