Natalie's Score: 88/100

Vintages Wine Panel: Cabernet Sauvignon, with Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Sangiovese rounding out the blend. Filled with raspberry, vanilla, cedar, cherry and sweet spice aromas. Dry with lively acidity and lots of fruit. Moderate to firm tannins bring it all together. International in style. Will benefit from 3+ years in a cellar, or decant it and enjoy it tonight. My note: Savoury with notes of cedar, meat, leather and smoke. Not hugely fruity. Love this style. Balanced, mouth-watering, full-bodied and supple. A good gift wine.

Sangiovese Cabernet Sauvignon food pairings: rare veal chops with a demi-glace.

Voluptuous Veal Wine
