Wine tasting note: 1997 Capaccia, Podere Querciagrande IGT Toscana

1997 Capaccia, Podere Querciagrande IGT Toscana

5th May 2001 Tuscany Table Red

Gorgeous deep crimson colour, viscous.
Still dumb on the nose, with lurking red and black berries.
Very full bodied, intense, with flavours of coffee, dark chocolate, bitter herbs, plums, tobacco and charred oak. Wonderful balance, with up-front acidity, and an incredibly long savoury finish.
Needs five years. Stunning.
