Monsanto Vigneto "Il Mulino" Nemo 1997 Wine Review (NW)

Tasting notes:


Black cherry, plum, and eucalyptus on the nose


Smooth and relaxed on the palate


Red currant, cedar, and smoke notes on the finish


Summary:

Here's a Cabernet Sauvignon-based super-Tuscan from a well respected pruducer in Tuscany. If you have some of this, drink it now. Based on this bottle, it's starting to fade. It was enjoyable and it evolved in the glass quite a bit throughout the course of the evening, but it doesn't seem like it will last much longer.

The release price was around $35 and I recently acquired this bottle for $32 from a great little shop that has older wines from time to time. Raise a glass!
