Region: Bolgheri, Tuscany, Italy
Varietal: 85% Cabernet Sauvignon & 15% Cabernet Franc
Tasting Notes: This wine is chiseled and sharp with blackberry, ripe cherry, grilled herb and barbecue spice. The aromas flow from the glass in a continuous stream and are all marked by radiant intensity. The mouthfeel is long and powerful. The crisp linearity of the wine's tannic backbone is perfectly measured to the volume and depth of the fruit flavors.
Pair with rich flavors like braised meats, osso bucco and aged, hard cheeses.
Awarded 100 points twice.
