lago di corbara

Lago land

Castello di Corbara 2002 Lago di Corbara (Umbria) – 50% sangiovese, the rest split evenly between cabernet sauvignon and merlot. Light, with a dark-toned exterior. Flavorful but thin, and kinda pointless. (8/09)

Lago my Eggo

[label]Castello di Corbara 2002 Lago di Corbara (Umbria) – 50% sangiovese, 25% each cabernet sauvignon and merlot. As boringly competent as so many of these wines are, with the sangiovese only able to add the slightest touch of bright fruit to the cab/merlot structural elements. It tastes fine, but it’s just so anonymous. Again, as so many other times, I have to ask: what’s the point? (11/07)
