The all Cabernet Sauvigon 1990 Castello di Monsanto, Nemo


I picked up the bottle of 1990 Castello di Monsanto, Nemo, Vino da Tavola di Toscana from WineBid as I was curious.  My interest lay in their Chianti but as I had never tasted a bottle of Nemo I gave it a go.  The 1990 Tuscan vintage is outstanding which is reflected in the fresh acidity and attractive grip of my bottle.  That said, the aging in wood is still noticeable and for my preference, the structure dominates the flavors in the finish so it might be best to drink this up.  Still, a solid experience.

1990 Castello di Monsanto, Nemo, Vino da Tavola di Toscana
Shipped by Allyn & Scott Wines.  Imported by Wine Cellars.  This wine is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon sourced from the Il Mulino vineyard planted in 1976.  It was aged for 18 months in oak barrels.  Alcohol 13.5%.  The fleshes out with air revealing generally dry flavors of dark fruit, leather, some roast, and polished wood.  There is fresh acidity and dry tannins leading towards a bitter black finish.  There is still attractive grip.  *** Now – 2020.
