Wine tasting note: 2000 Badiola Merlot DOC Colline Lucchesi

2000 Badiola Merlot DOC Colline Lucchesi

11th Jun 2001 Colline Lucchesi & Montecarlo Table Red

[En primeur]
Opaque purple/red.
Muted nose.
Full bodied and dry with some ripe plum fruit hidden under mouth-crinkling, furry tannins. Concentrated and long but it needs time to develop and I don't know if the fruit will outlive the tannins. Try again in 4 years.
