The Vigorello Hunt - An Update


It was some time since I got hold of a bottle of Vigorello to add to the line up, but the other day a bottle of 1990 arrived.

Now there are eight...

  1. wow! i'm sure it will be a great tasting! i'd like to make a small correction, in the first post about vigorello you wrote "By now Vigorello consists of 60% Sangiovese and 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, but back in 1968 it was all Sangiovese. Starting in 1979 Cabernet was added, the first year with 10%. It gradually increased and from 1997 it was 40%, the percentage that it has held since then." but it is not correct. Vigorello 2007 is 50% caber sauvig, 45% merlot and 5% petit verdot. In 2001 merlot was added (15% that year). I don't know when sangiovese was "ousted" but 2006 was without sangiovese (it was 50% cab sauv and 50% merlot) and 2007 saw first year with 5% of petit verdot.
