Tenuta di Nozzole Cabernet Sauvignon Toscana IGT Il Pareto 2006
Like a big 2004 Napa Cabernet. Smooth and full bodied with hints of cocoa and a long finish that is classic cabernet. Drinks wonderfully now after 30 minute of decanting. Love itAdd winemaker's notes

Located in Greve in the heart of the Chianti Classico Zone, the Nozzole Estate holds vineyar4ds that date back to the 1300. This 100% Cabernet Sauvignon is a virtual newcomer with it's first release in 1987. Aged 16-18 months in French oak, this 2006 was rated 95 points by Wine Spectator who said "Beautiful aromas of crushed blackberry and currant, with intense cassis character. Full-bodied, with supersilky tannins and amazing pure fruit. Lasts for minutes. The best Pareto in a long time. Cabernet Sauvignon. Best after 2011."
