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.
anyone try an '04 recently?
Nope, but I just bought 6 of them, so if anyone HAS tried one recently, I too would appreciate an update.
