Available for:
A dense ruby/purple color is followed by a sweet nose of high class cigar tobacco intermixed with smoke, minerals, black currants, and vanilla. In the mouth, it is dense, medium to full-bodied, with superb richness, purity, and overall harmony. Really kicks in on the fresh, bright finish. Perfect with game, red meats and aged cheese.

Complex aromas of violet, berry and fresh meat follow through to a full yet polished palate, with beautiful tannins and a long, long finish. Racy and structured. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Sangiovese. Best after 2011.

The 2005 Sammarco is elegant and refined although it lacks the structure and power of the finest vintages. It possesses terrific depth of fruit and outstanding length, both of which are no doubt enhanced by the addition of some of the fruit that is normally destined for the D'Alceo bottling. In 2005 Sammarco is 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot and 3% Sangiovese. This should be a fairly early-drinking vintage, something that can't often be said about the estate's wines. To be released in 2009. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2020.
