Marchesi Mazzei Zisola Sicilia IGT 2004

Member Review by TriumphDaytona:

Seriously delightful nero...The nose offers a wildy fruity adventure, lovely cherry and spice notes with a hint of mineral quality. The initial taste allows a nice medium body with chewy tannins. The cherry and blackberry notes hold up well throughout. It has a nice spice that compliments on the finish which is a nice long and smooth let down. Great with food or simply sipping by itself. Great everyday tuscan red mmmmmm.
