Tanzer"One of my all-time favorite wines, this home run of a southern Italian wine helps bring the spotlight to a region making the most underrated wine in the world. This is the one that got me started with these superb wines, and if you are a collector and you haven't paid attention to the scores (Parker, Spectator and Tanzer continuously score this in the mid-90's every year), this wine will open up a whole new world of wine to you. 60% Cabernet, 30% Merlot, 10% Aglianico" - Ian Dorin - Wine Librar...
International Wine CellarMedium-deep ruby-red. Aromas of slightly acidic red berries, smoky plum, bell pepper, quinine and cedar. Less generous than recent vintages on entry, then rather tough and lean in the middle. Best today on the long, complex finish, where the tannins are fine-grained and the wine maintains its trademark elegance. Made from a very difficult vintage, this is a good example of why Montevetrano is considered a great wine.
