WineO Mark Review

From Tuscany, this is a powerful young Riserva from one of the most well-known Italian wines in the US. 

On the glass, this wine has a ruby red color with garnet hues. The aroma has cherries, plums, strawberries, chocolate, and cinnamon with notes of leather, mushrooms, and spices.

This medium-bodied, elegant wine has medium intensity and is well-structured. There are flavors of cherries, raspberries, cinnamon, dark chocolate, and pepper. It has a lingering finish of leather, tobacco, and coffee.

This wine has a great balance of earthy notes along with a strong concentration of cherry flavors. Overall it’s a delicious wine for red wine lovers.
