Capezzana Barco Reale di Carmignano 2008 Wine Review (NW)

Tasting notes:

Currants and leather notes open on the nose

Full bodied and savory on the palate

Finishes with blackberry, cherry, and licorice


I like this wine because it's rustic and charming. It has a nice mix of fruit and savory qualities that typifies Sangiovese-based Tuscan reds from Italy. It's also a great bargain at $13. Serve with pasta bolognese- and raise a glass!
