    Full red. Aromas of strawberry jam, woodsmoke, meat, nuts and tomato; seems more evolved than the '98 at a similar age. Sweet and lush but a bit undifferentiated. Round and ripe in the middle, but finishes with a slightly bitter edge of acids and tannins.

    There are 1,520 cases of the 1999 Sangiovese. Earthy, loamy soil notes combine with saddle leather, sweet and sour cherries, and soft ripe fruit in this sweet, round, delicious effort. Underlying acidity provides definition and vibrancy.

    Had at Thanksgiving in San Diego. 10 years old and very delicious. Finish was a little short but the fruit and tannins were sweet and smooth. It still had that lovely graphite and pencil shavings notes that the '99s had last year but less pronounced. I was sad to see this one go.
