Super Tuscan, full bodied cab, Sangiovese, cab franc blend. Still young but plenty of depth and complexity. Dark fruits and leather. Needs decanting, opens up well. Great value

Drink it. It's a nice inexpensive wine. Great with tomato pasta sauces.

Dried cherries. Tuscan flavors muddied by Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc.

Dusty coco notes with cedar box and some acid. A bit much oak for me but still a balanced wine.

Tuscan Monday. Not a horrible way to start the week. Early maturity, lovely dark stuff going on.
