ruby; black cherries, mint, licorice, violets; medium body, medium+ acidity, fine grained tannins, 13.5% ABV; blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Cabernet Franc, and 15% Petite Verdot; definitely international rather than Italian in style, still has life in front of it; $57

Owned by the family since the early 70s, estate is located in the village of San Leolino, near Panzano in Chianti. A blend of 50% Cab Sauv, 35% Petit Verdot & 15% Cab Franc, aromas of fruit and floral notes. On the palate raspberry and cranberry flavors with some herbal notes. Firm tannins, good balance ending with earthy mineral character.

Lovely blend. Full and plentiful on the nose, round edges on the palate.

Nice flavor of berries and not earthy. Home wine tasting and perhaps $30? I like Earthquake better for the same price

Mouthwatering IGT #supertuscan featuring rich cassis fruit on the nose set off by forest floor and mushroom. (In fact the label calls out shiitake.) The dark fruit carries through to the palate but there’s a robust acidity counterpoint and soft tannins on a long finish. Delicious wine.
