Anselmi Capitel Croce 2001

Colour: Deep, tarnished gold - nice brilliance to it.

Nose: Heady & honeyed with a bit of minerality in the background.

Palate: Really quite rich, great honey and roast melon flavours, pushing almost towards sweetness. The minerality from the nose forms a backbone, giving it good structure. Perhaps the odd bortytis note. Excellent with both the mussels and roast chicken - mouth filling and with a long finish. Aged well, though I miss the freshness that it has in its youth.
