Again, a nice tuscan blend that we enjoyed. Not quite as much as Argiano's NC, however still a full bodied, smooth blend with great flavor. $19.9... Read more

Showed savory notes on the nose with green olive, chalk dust and a hint of red fruit. The palate was medium bodied and showed raspberry, confectioners sugar and a bit of cinnamon. Altogether an enjoyable any day wine.

The wine appears a dense, almost opaque purple-red, but of striking luminosity. Intense, rich draughts of red berry fruit lead off on the nose, with raspberry and wild strawberry well in evidence, followed closely by rich blackberry and dark cherry. This impressive, multi-layered bouquet closes with spicier impressions of cocoa powder, tobacco leaf, vanilla, and cinnamon. The palate is equally impressive for its warmth, velvet smoothness, and complex balance, where dense but supple tannins are already well integrated into the structure. A tasty, nervy acidity fuels a lengthy progression, and it concludes with lovely fruit in a final crescendo.
