Elegant aromas of cherries and berries with delicate notes of vanilla and
spice, balanced acidity and well integrated tannins, and a smooth finish.
"The 2000 Pinot Nero Riserva Vigna Sant'Urbano has been the benchmark Pinot
Noir in Italy since the light 1980's and has confirmed that Mazon, where the
vineyards are located, has the soil and climate to make this difficult grape work.
The elegant and fragrant nose of wild cherries, strawberries, herbs, mint, and
leather is followed by a silky but continuous flow of ripe Pinot fruit and the full
gamut of varietal flavors, shapely, but sustained and long as well."
Daniel Thomases, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate October 2004. 90 points.
