Wine tasting note: 1998 Tenuta di Forci Cardinal Buonvisi VDT

1998 Tenuta di Forci Cardinal Buonvisi VDT

20th Sep 2001 ITL17000 Colline Lucchesi & Montecarlo Table Red

Deep purple, almost opaque with some redding at rim.
Concentrated, alcoholic, dense nose with earthy, stewed-berry flavours and a sour tang.
Full-bodied with sweet and sour, intense flavours - blackcurrants, quite aggressive oak, sharp acidity, lots of alcohol - almost like a port, sweet fruit through to the finish.
Still a bit raw and unformed, but good - should be very good in a few years.
