2006 Il Caberlot


95Average Score
flagCentral Italy / Italy

The 2006 Il Caberlot comes across as very shut down and intensely tannic at this early stage. With some coaxing the fruit gradually emerges, and sweet, mentholated, balsamic notes appear, yet this remains a reticent wine. Today there is little aromatic development, but that will come with time. Underneath the tannins lurks a wine of exceptional balance. Like a shy teenager, the 2006 Caberlot needs some time to overcome its awkwardness. The wine’s length and polish are superb. I sampled the 2006 Caberlot from a 750ml tasting bottle, but the wine is commercially only available in magnums, and in that format is likely to be even more backward than this tasting note suggests! Anticipated maturity: 2016-2026. Aug 2009, www.robertparker.com
