Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
Upon its release, the ’01 Vigna d’Alceo was called one of the greatest vintages, lauded for its beauty, focus, breadth and aromatic; almost two decades later, this wine is proving the mettle of that praise. It’s rare to find a wine that can match its sheer power with unmistakable finesse, but the ’01 Vigna d’Alceo, for all its muscularity, glides with a boxer’s grace, melding its sweet red and blue fruits with tarry earth, warm spices, potpourri, grilled herbs, black tea and licorice. Surprisingly ethereal for a Super Tuscan, this wine seems to float in the mouth, yet it’s also remarkably dense and complex, unfolding myriad layers as it coasts to a lingering, structured finish. A Bordeaux-style blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon with 15% Petit Verdot, this biodynamic Super Tuscan ferments with only natural yeasts and ages for a year in barrique followed by 18 to 24 months in bottle before release.
