Another SUPER super Tuscan. Great dark fruit and spice. 10 years a good time to drink, but could easily sit for a few more years. Made more interesting to me with the Calgary connection. First tried at Bonterra (miss it) 12 years ago. Love it and the higher end offerings.

Found some at LCBO! No longer have to "smuggle" from Calgary. Picconero even better, but much higher price point. Great wines with a Canadian connection.

Great Super Tuscan. Opens up wonderfully: full flavours & a bit peppery on the finish.
