The wine displays the hallmarks of Cabernet and of the Terra Rossa. It has an excellent tannin structure, and a blackcurrant fruit core which carries easily across the mid palate and delivers good balance on the finish. The wine may not be elegant enough to excel on its own, but is a great accompaniment to any serious meat dish.
With St. Hugo you know what you get, and the 2001 is drinking at its peak now. I really enjoyed it.
