Villa La Selva 1998 Selvamaggio Sangiovese (Toscana)

This 100% Tuscan Cabernet has struggled for ripeness in the past couple of vintages, and the 1998 is fairly green at the core. Beyond that it has a nice feel and racy tannins. But the murky, somewhat underripe flavor profile is a hurdle that it just can't clear. This type of wine makes one wonder about Cabernet's performance in central Tuscany. —M.S. Michael Schachner
