Wine tasting note: 2000 Buonamico Cercatoja Rosso

2000 Buonamico Cercatoja Rosso

11th Jun 2001 Colline Lucchesi & Montecarlo Table Red

[En primeur]
Opaque purple/red.
Closed on the nose with some plum and oak flavours tucked away - you get the impression that this will turn out to be a big wine though.
Medium bodied but intense, with raspberries and inky, oaky notes, firm tannins, good balance and a fairly green, long, dry, herby finish.
Hard to assess at this stage but I think it will really shine in 4 or 5 years.
