Black cherry, blackberry. Tea. Earth - leaves. Graphite, just a little. Medium bodied and not overwhelmingly dry. Very plush tannins. Well-rounded finish.

After experiencing the '12 in Rome last week, I found the '13 at Cardiff SSM. Very nice, slightly less well integrated than the '12. These wines are excellent with food, I am learning to appreciate medium bodied wines for their ability to pair well with so many dishes.

My favourite rufina... but that's not saying much. I'm so much more partial to the Classico region. This one goes down easily and has nice flavour, but it won't take your breath away.

$16 atTotal Wine and a very nice surprise. Long maceration. Aged in old barrique. Wood notes not obtrusive. Lovely fresh fruit. Fine tannin. Well-structured. Appealing wine. Especially for the price.

Nice with bright acidity and some fruit to balance the oaky tannins.
