Italy — Tuscany • $21.95 • 88.5/100

The wine is deep purple at the core, showing red on the very narrow rim. Aromas of vanilla, black cherry and blackberry are backed by notes of smoke and dry earth. It is dry, with brisk acidity, balanced alcohol and fine, chalky tannins. Fruit is very ripe, but maintains some freshness on the palate, with gentle spice and lingering tannins on the cedary finish. Aged 24 months in larger oak casks, with 5% Merlot supplementing the Sangiovese. • Tasted 2017-03-04 • LCBO id#344416 • Find it at your nearest LCBOVIN VINO WINE MERCHANTS INC. (Agent)
