We're breezing through Boston on our way to L.A. and spent the night with (NW). Ordered pizza and (NW) served up this inexpensive bottle of Tuscan red.
It was a medium cherry red with slight bricking at the rim. Bouquet is amazing with sweet fruity almost candied cherries nose with slight hints of licorice and maybe tobacco.
The palate is a bit tart and steely with a thin texture. This wine though is quite nice for the price (around $10) with earthy notes and a peak maturity which will not last. This wine needs to be drunk NOW. I liked it especially at the price. Raise a glass.
