Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: 91 points

The 2000 Pàtrimo marks the debut of Feudi di San Gregorio's new label design. A traditional front label was replaced by a small square that underlined a revolutionary approach. The label flaunts its stark minimalism and Spartan elegance. Copycat labels would soon appear throughout Italy and across the wider world of wine. The 2000 vintage saw a very cold winter and lower than average temperatures throughout much of the growing season. The cool climate is evident in this Merlot, because this vintage offers a level of tannic astringency and tightness that you don't get in the other wines presented in this vertical. The body of the wine also feels less extracted and more streamlined as a result. Dark prune and dried fig flavors are followed by spice and toasted wood (this vintage was aged in new French barrique for 24 months). Because of the wine's structural power, this vintage promises more longevity.
