Tenute Silvio Nardi 2013 Rosso Di Montalcino, $18.59-$21.99, 93 points, poured a deep candy-apple red with some bricking toward the broad clear wine ring.
Aromatic flowers, fruity cherries, earth, and mint were excellent.
Marginally heavier-bodied than the other 2013 Rosso Di Montalcino wines tasted, but the mouthwatering acidity was consistent. Tannins were fine, grainy, and firm.
Rich flavors reflective of the aromas with bourbon notes were excellent too; more an adolescent Brunello than a baby Brunello.
Finished fabulously on red raspberry and cherry with hot spices, mint, and a sweet-spot 13.5% alcohol.
Paired perfectly with my spaghetti and meatballs..
Just maybe the best Rosso Di Montalcino I've tasted, and how glad I am that I recommend this to the lady at the Bedford NHLS looking for a Nebbiolo under $35 (couldn't find one).
