Castello di Monsanto 1999 Nemo Cabernet Sauvignon (Tuscany)

Earth, bacon, maple and mushroom comprise the nose on this Tuscan Cabernet, which for reasons still unknown never seems to get to that optimum level of ripeness. Hence, there's a streak of green running through the heart of the palate. In addition, hard tannins make it tough to swallow. Time could help that, but it won't do much for the bell pepper flavor. —M.S. Michael Schachner
