    Doesn't smell dry, smells fragrantly fruity. This red is the Biltmore Estates' Chianti. It has a full, soft flavor including a blueberry tartness with a dry finish one would expect of a Chianti. Read More

  • Le Macchiole Supertuscan Blend Bolgheri Rosso 2000

    Snoothrank:

    Garnet red, with ryby hues. Juicy and vibrant in the mouth, this 80% Sangiovese, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Merlot offers juicy notes of ripe blackberries and dried plums. Long and spicy on the finish, with notes of tobacco, tar, and mint going on for minutes. Extra fine yet tight tannins for this quintessential Super Tuscan. Read More
