Terenzi 'Colle Forma' Cesanese del Piglio 2006

Member Review by Oenophilus:

What an interesting wine, recommended with dinner by Shelly, the Sommelier at SPQR in San Francisco. Not too aggressive to sip while waiting for the antipasti - with which it paired perfectly. A little too hot to handle the very peppered Carbonara. The wine is very pretty and shines brightly yet retaining a dark purple shade. A beautifully interesting nose reminiscent of Moroccan spiced carrots - with cinnamon and clove and caramelized sweetness leading into a very round mouthfeel full of broad black cherry fruit flavors. It is not quite flabby, but I would have liked the acids to fill my mouth. The chalky tannins and plum flavors rest on the mid tongue while the acids prickle and burn around on the finish.
