A Proprietary Blend wine from Piedmont in Italy. 1999 Elio Altare La Villa Vino da Tavola 750ml


Winemaker's Notes:

91 points Stephen Tanzer (International Wine Cellar): (a blend of Nebbiolo and Barbera) Deep medium ruby. Slightly roasted yet pure aromas of black cherry, blueberry, licorice and mint. Rich, fat and broad on entry, then tighter and less sweet in the middle than the Larigi. Intense black cherry flavor is complicated on the very long, firm finish by notes of blackberry, bitter chocolate and espresso. Tannins are quite firm, in the style of the vintage.
