Birillo Maremma Toscana IGT 2008
The Birillo is a wonderful Bordeaux-blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot and they work together blissfully. A rustic red color with spicy and earthy aromas combing sweet ripe cherries and smoky wood. Deliciously sweet and sour with a nice balance and moderate to full-bodied. Notes of smoky wood, cherries and spices. Incredibly smooth on the palate with a nice spicy finish. This is a good red that needs to be savored, shared and thoroughly enjoyed. I didn't share this one but I will next time... promise.
