Feudi di San Gregorio Serpico 2001
from Southern Italy, Italy
Intense, persistent bouquet of rich wild cherries, toasted oak and warm vanilla. Soft, dense and well-balanced. The finish is long and pleasant, with flavors of red berries against a smooth background of toast and spice.
Well-matched with roasted meat and game.
"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. Chewy finish. This is fantastic."
"The 2001 Serpico is another wine that appears to need more bottle age. Today it is in an in-between stage where the fruit is no longer primary but the tertiary notes aren’t fully developed either. The 2001 is a powerful Serpico with impressive tannic clout that will require further cellaring to soften. With time, hints of wild cherries, herbs, chocolate and leather emerge but only with great reluctance. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2023.

I've enjoyed Red Wine for many years, albiet from a far, never really learning how to truely enjoy a wine. Until I purchased a couple bottles of this beautiful wine. Once I tasted this most excellent wine, I was hooked.
My only regret is not buying a case to store a bottle or two for a rainy day.
I realize this review isn't what you would normally expect. But give this wine a try. I truely believe you'll be very satisfied.
