IWC

International Wine Cellar Author: Ian D'Agata Issue: Issue 169

(15% alcohol): Bright deep ruby. Deep aromas of redcurrant, camphor, dried flowers and sweet spices. Broad and sweet on entry, but with building vinosity framing the flavors of chocolatey redcurrant, spices, camphor and rose petal. Still youthfully closed today but already quite suave, with complicating flinty minerality. Finishes with serious palate-saturating breadth and big, broad tannins. This might be the first time that I actually liked a young Cerretalto, a wine that in the past was far too full of graphite and other aromas and flavors I don't want in my glass of sangiovese (IWC readers will remember I rated the 2001 only 89 points). Owner Giacomo Neri says the graphite is a characteristic of this particular vineyard, but I am glad to see this quality being expressed to a lesser degree in recent Cerretalto vintages. I'm very glad to report that in the 2007 vintage, Cerretalto is firing on all cylinders.
