Enjoying this easy going Super Tuscan with my favorite pasta in the world: 'Penne alla Bettola' - perhaps the worlds best vodka sauce.

2010 Castello di Bolgheri Varvara Super Tuscan. Blend of CS, PV, Syrah and Merlot. An elegant sip with black cherry, currant, cedar spice, dried tobacco and leather. Lively and soft with a fleshy finish. Better than many Napa big boys and less than half the price. Roughly $30 retail. #wine #tuscany #bolgheri #sommelier#sommelier#sommelier #somm #cabernet

Аромат ягодный, полный, с небольшой добавкой пряностей. Строгий, сдержанный, симпатичный. Во вкусе немного больше дуба, пряно, чуть шоколадно. 15.5/20 (86/100)

부드럽지만 절제된 느낌 좋은 발란스 소심한 모범생같은 느낌

밀키, 치즈향, 플로랄, 탄 나무향. 맛은 깔끔하고 적당한 산도. 끝에 딱 좋을 정도로 나타나는 탄닌

Сиропистое тело. Высокая сладость. Во вкусе черничный сок и варенье из ежевики. Пряное послевкусие. Чёрный перец. Невероятно крутое сложное вино. Во вкусе очень много всего, гораздо больше моего описания.

2012 Varvara Bolgheri brought to us by Castello di Bolgheri. This my just be my favorite Super Tuscan ever! If you like Super Tuscan wines, you better try this one. Although the bouquet is weak with hints of rose pedals, the initial palate immediately gives us spice and chocolate. There is dark berry and green apples. The finish is not very dry and leaves a tingle on your lips. Over all , it is a light wine that is heavier than a pinot and lighter than a cab. Not as spicy as a big zinfandel, but more bang than a merlot. BUY IT!
