Castelli del Grevepesa ClementeVII 2010 Rosso DI Toscana (IGT), $19.99-$49.99, 90 points, poured core opaque grading a not quite clear black currant purple/red with a clear wine ring.
Shy aromas of violets, black cherry, and earth notes were pleasant.
Medium-plus body carried good acidity and smooth supportive tannins with delightful flavors of plums and pomegranate.
Finished long on the trailing palate, escalating tannins, a smidgeon of mint, bursting hot spices, and a conforming 14% alcohol.
Varietals were Merlot, Sangiovese, and Syrah.
Paired perfectly with my Tagliatelle nest pasta with meatballs in Marinara sauce.
