2000 Cepparello - This wine was silky smooth with nicely rounded red/dark fruit flavours. I wouldn't age it any longer but it certainly isn't over the hill.
Several recent posters on CT said that this wine was raisiny/pruney, DOA, etc. Perhaps they should store their wines in a passive cellar like I do.
Same type of comments about the 1999. I have a mag of the '99 that I should open in your presence. Let's talk.
Sorry for the bit of sarcasm but I have found this syndrome several times now where CT posters declare a wine to be dead and I rush to check mine only to find that it is perfectly fine.
I also have 99 Cepparello in 750ml and I'll wager it's fine too! As it happens, we'll know that by the end of the week.
