Wine tasting note: 1998 Tenuta di Valgiano Cesari

1998 Tenuta di Valgiano Cesari

5th May 2001 Colline Lucchesi & Montecarlo Table Red

[100% Sangiovese] Deep, even purple-red, almost opaque.
Mute nose with some sour red fruits.
Inky and closed with sweet vanilla flavours (American oak?), juicy cherry and mulberry fruit with an undertow of herbs and tobacco, bracing acidity and hard, green tannins.
Very good, probably needs 10 years.
