Waves of dark chocolate and black currant aromas burst from your glass followed by a surge of plum, vanilla, and cedar. Before you know it a fast break of flavor hits you culminating in a satisfyingly mellow finish.
We asked an Italian wine-making friend to find us a wine worthy of Lot 90 status and he performed the equivalent of an alley-oop. He passed the ball to a winery down the road resulting in this slam dunk of a Tuscan red. Made from dark berries picked from vines in the heart of Tuscany and aged for twenty months in French oak barrels, this is a supersonic red capable of mind-blowing feats of strength.
|This wine is like a surprise party in a bottle, providing instant amusement every time you pop the cork. Double it up with grilled lamb chops with rosemary or a smoky eggplant puree for a gastronomic adventure.
