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

50% Cab, 30% Merlot, 10% Syrah, 10% PEtite Verdot
Deep ruby, clear, clean aromas of baking spice from new oak, plum, black cherry, leather, violet. Juicy but not over the top - well balanced with fine tannins. Straightforward and luscious
This is lovely - medium tannin, coffee, hints of baking spice, great length, a more-ish wine

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