Wine Review: This "Super-Spanish" red is more than likely what the Italians were striving for when they thought of blending Sangiovese with other French varieties. Opaque in the glass, this red opens up with notes of cedar, nutmeg, ripe strawberries, lavender, and hints of eucalyptus. The palate may not be the most intense but the integration of flavors, textures, acidity, and tannins is something few wines are capable of achieving. The cooking spices are mixed seamlessly with dried cranberries and plums. There are also hints of Maduro tobacco leaves, cloves, and Kalamata olives. Savory, with a dry finish indicating food, is more than required. - Nicolay
