Wine Review: This opaque and murky dark ruby colored wine from Toscana is a fruit bomb. It opens with fragrant red currant and pomegranate bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium to full-bodied, fruit forward and savory. The flavor profile is a mild mineral infused ripe red currant with notes of dried cherries and black plum. It also detected a touch of strawberry licorice, old oak, and craisin. The finish is dry and its dusty mild tannins are food friendly. I would pair this wine veal scaloppini. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: COLOR: Deep, black cherry with a touch of a bright, shiny red. ON THE NOSE: Fresh herbs like thyme and rosemary with hints of mint, blueberries, pickled cherry, prune, tobacco leaves and cured meat. ON THE PALATE: Soft, yet vibrant entrance evolving on a framed mouthfeel with blackberries and blueberries, lingering on chocolate covered cherries.
