A deep flavored 2003 Castello Monsanto, Nemo


I was looking around for older bottles of Chianti wine when I was sidetracked by a few vintages of Castello Monsanto’s Super Tuscan wine Nemo.  I randomly decided to open a bottle Friday night so I opted for the 2003 Castello Monsanto, Nemo Il Mulino, Tuscany which is the youngest I have.  There is a lovely nose of blue and black fruit which is matched by deep, balanced flavor in the mouth.  It is more flavorful than complex with the sensation that bottle age has made it the wine accessible.  As such, it is a very satisfying Cabernet Sauvignon from Tuscany.

2003 Castello Monsanto, Nemo Il Mulino, Tuscany
Imported by MW Imports.  This wine is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon fermented in stainless steel then aged for 18 months in oak.  Alcohol 14%.  This is a deep, earthy wine of blue and black fruit.  At this age the wine is still has some fresh structure and grip which provides a pleasing amount of texture.  More importantly the good, deep flavor is hard to resist.  ***(*) Now – 2027.
