Maremma, Tuscany, Italy
100% Cabernet Franc
A beautiful ruby-garnet violet color, with a dried herb, rosemary-laced, smoky nose. Full and ripe, with currants, black cherry, and mulberry. Anise, bay leaf, and cedar finish it off. Still tight at first--let it open for all the asian spice to come out. Really pretty after 5 years in the bottle, and it’s perfect with game, salami, olives, and risotto.
