2003 Sammarco

Castello dei Rampolla

92Average Score
flagCentral Italy / Italy

The 2003 Sammarco (90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Merlot and 5% Sangiovese) presents a gorgeously ripe, jammy nose along with licorice, cassis, smoke, earthiness, grilled herbs and sweet dark fruit nuances that flow from the glass. Full-bodied and long on the palate, it is a massively structured effort that should drink well to age 20, perhaps longer. Only the hard, drying tannins on the finish keep the score from going higher. The 2003 is the first vintage of Sammarco that adds a small percentage of Merlot to the blend. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2023. Jun 2007, www.robertparker.com
