Wine Advocate ReviewThe medium-bodied 2000 Charbono Tofanelli Vineyard (sadly, only 250 cases produced) reveals a meaty, earthy, damp forest, and black cherry-scented perfume. As the wine sits in the glass, a floral (acacia?) note emerges. It should drink well for 10-15 years.

The product of a patch of old vines discovered by Larry Turley, this is a rare wine. Unfamiliar Charbono is identical to Argentine Bonarda and similar in character to Italian Barbera. Typically deep purple inky, medium-bodied with bold black fruit flavors, aromas of tar and leather, it becomes more silky and elegant as it ages (10-20 years being ideal) and complements game, grilled beef and roast chicken very well.
