Wine tasting note: 2002 Tenuta di Valgiano Le Tese Colline Lucchesi DOC

2002 Tenuta di Valgiano Le Tese Colline Lucchesi DOC

31st May 2003 Colline Lucchesi & Montecarlo Table Red

[Barrel sample]
Even red/ruby.
Strange nose of cat's piss and hay.
Medium to full bodied with juicy red fruits that weren't apparent at all on the nose. Good concentration and grip, but still unknit with slightly raw acids.
Too early to tell what this'll be like - like many of the wines on show, the nose and palate told different stories. Interesting and worth a retaste.
