Terra Di Monteverro 2011 Toscana Red Wine (IGT), $28.99-$59.99, 92 points, poured core black grading ruby near the broad clear wine ring and leggy glass wall.
Aromas were earthy with black olives, plums, and black currants.
This was a dry full-bodied red wine with good acidity and grainy supportive tannins.
Flavors were complex and nuanced with plums, currants, mint, and dry cooking herbs which paired perfectly with my common spaghetti in Marinara sauce and hot buttered garlic bread.
The moderately smooth texture was consistent throughout and continued through the trailing palate-dominated long finish accented by a warm 14.5% alcohol and cayenne pepper.
Varietals were 40% Cabernet Franc, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot, and 5% Petit Verdot.
