1999 Feudi di San Gregorio "Piano di Montevergine" Taurasi

SKU #1086528 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 1999 is another impressive Piano di Montevergine. This is a touch more powerful and rustic than the decidedly elegant 2001, but it is just as engaging. Smoke, leather, licorice, wild cherries and rosemary develop beautifully in the glass, along with suggestions of ash and game that add character and complexity. The 1999 is a decidedly powerful Piano di Montevergine that is rewarding today and should drink well for another decade, perhaps beyond. (AG)  (8/2010)

90 points Wine Spectator

 This takes no prisoners. Big and rich aromas of crushed blackberries and black pepper, with hints of minerals. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and a long, opulent finish. A bit austere, but it's impressive. Best after 2005.  (2/2004)

Italy

- Once named Enotria for its abundant vineyards, Italy (thanks to the ancient Greeks and Romans) has had an enormous impact on the wine world. From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages. The entire Italian peninsula is seeing a winemaking revolution and is now one of the most exciting wine Region in the world.
