Wine Description

(From 2008 Vintage) Serpico is a bold, larger-than-life wine, with beautiful aromatic intensity and notes of black fruit, espresso and crushed granite. Some 18 months of oak aging adds elements of dark spice and smoke; and the wine shows firm tannins and a long, polished mouthfeel.

Winemaker's Notes

"Robert Parker 98: The 2001 Serpico, impenetrable and inky, staggeringly rich in both aroma and flavor, offers ultra-ripe but perfectly fresh berry fruit, cloves, cinnamon and chocolate, and mouth-coating, deep-pile tactile sensations which combine iron power and an enveloping voluptuous texture infinitely deep and long. I would be amazed if this wine did not last thirty years."" Wine Spectator 94: Bold and structured red. Dark color; black licorice, raspberry and mineral character and hints of dried flowers; full-bodied, with spicy fruit and undertones of black pepper. read more...Chewy finish. This is fantastic. Best after 2007. 5,000 cases made. (JS) 100 year old Aglianico """ (hide)
