The 2002 Montevetrano is another of the surprises in this tasting. The vintage was cold and damp, as it was throughout Italy, leading to a late September harvest, which is unusual here. There is a wild, unrestrained quality to the 2002 I find very appealing. Grilled herbs, blackberries, leather and spices flow from the glass. This is likely to always remain a rather firm wine, but it also has the freshness to age beautifully in the coming years. In this context the 2002 suffers a bit from the surrounding vintages, but it will be wonderful on its own, especially at the dinner table. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2022.
