This wine merits every one of these 100 points. The 2001 Vin Santo di Montepulciano Occhio di Pernice (375 milliliters) is a singular work of art and a profound expression of Tuscany. Dense and mysterious, the Occhio di Pernice reveals a complex and enveloping bouquet with aromas of dried plums and dates, propolis, gingerbread, malaga and tobacco. In the mouth it is sweet and spicy and the olfactory notes return, expanding with those of dried apricots and smoked hazelnut with small nuances of Christmas spices. The bouquet here is smoky and savory, but brilliant and sophisticated at the same time. A wine that surprises with every sip for its concentration and depth.
The aftertaste persistence is incredibly long. This wine is built like a tank and I'm not sure it will ever exit its drinking prime. Drinking Window: 2017 - 2060
