Sant' Antimo Fabius, Ciacci Piccolomini d'Aragona 1999
We picked up this small parcel recently and believe it has some legs. Highly rated with only 500 cases made. Unusually made from the Syrah grape (hence it's age worthy nature).
Here is what Robert Parker had to say:
'Fabulous is the 1999 Sant'Antimo Favius (500 cases). A huge black/purple-colored effort, it boasts notes of roasted espresso, blackberries, asphalt, truffles, and pepper. Explosive, rich, unctuously-textured, and full-bodied, with low acidity, it is stunning at present, yet unformed and primary. Anticipated maturity: 2003-2015. Bravo!'
