    Item no. 99149

    Winemaker's Notes:

    Crisp minty essences emerge first, followed by a spicy mélange of clove, cinnamon, and vanilla, which concludes with a prominent vein of slaty mineral. Solid structure shows through in the mouth, with juicy tannins and a judicious acidity developing through the palate; it tapers off nicely in a perfect balance of elements.

    Blend: Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese, Merlot and Petit Verdot

    Critical Acclaim:

    Very pretty, with perfumed blackberry and mineral aromas. Medium- to full-bodied, with fine tannins and a berry, milk chocolate and cedar aftertaste. A bit lean now, but polished and pretty. Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese and Merlot. Best after 2010.

    Medium bodied and smooth as silk with a gentle, lingering finish, this Toscana with a cranberry and raspberry flavor is easy to drink by itself or with light cheeses, summer salads, and grilled chicken or fish. Right now, too savory dishes may overwhelm it.

    I found this young Tuscan wine to be very drinkable beyond its years. A tribute to it's balance, this is a great buy for those of us that love Brunello's and would love them even more if they were $20.
