|Sarah Emilson rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Dark ruby in colour; and a nose that expresses plums, blackberries, black cherries, tomato plant, licorice, pencil shavings, allspice, cigar smoke and violets. A dry wine with high acidity that leans towards the higher end of medium in body, alcohol, and tannins. Flavours of black cherry, plum, blackberry, allspice, licorice and truffle that lead into an earthy medium length finish. This is a good quality wine that can be enjoyed now or held for another 3-5 years based on it's healthy tannin structure. This wine tastes like a super Tuscan ought to taste: Italian at heart but benefiting from french oak and modern winemaking techniques. This wine will pair well with hearty/meaty pasta dishes that have a tomato based sauce (eg lasagna) and hard/mature Italian cheeses.
