Vigna d'Alceo, 2001

Vigna d'Alceo

At twelve years of age, the 2001 Vigna d'Alceo remains a behemoth. Even with all of its power, the 2001 is also incredibly elegant, refined and polished. The flavors and textures still haven't fully filled out, as is the case with the vintages of the 1990s, so readers will have to be patient. Still, all of the elements are in place for the 2001 to be an even more spectacular wine than it already it is in another few years. The 2001 isn't quite as structured as the 1999, but it is a touch more refined and floral. - Antonio Galloni, 97/100, December 2013

Contains Sulphites.

Appellation: Tuscany

Tuscany (or Toscana) is a large region made up of many significant smaller areas that are known across the world for the level of quality that they produce. Brunello di Montalcino, Bolgheri and Chianti can both be found here as well as the infamous "Super Tuscans".

Grape Blend: Cab. Sauvignon | Petit Verdot

A pairing of two classic Bordeaux grapes. The Cabernet lends weight and structure, the Petit Verdot softens and colours. A match made in heaven.
