Fattoria Le Pupille Elisabetta Geppetti 'Poggio Valente', Morellino di Scansano Riserva DOCG (Italy), $31.44-$36.99, 93 points, poured a slightly cloudy ruby red 'swirl' with a clear wine ring and sticky glass sheeting.
Smells of pomegranate, red raspberry, plum, dusty earth, dried herbs, and a soft floral vibe were excellent.
Full-bodied with mouthwatering acidity and developing firm grainy tannins carried rich flower flavors, seamless red fruit flavors, hints of plum, subtle hints of bay leaf, and black tea late on the tongue.
Finished long on the trailing palate, bourbon notes, hot spices, and a potent 14.5% alcohol.
Paired perfectly with my Mexican cuisine.
Varietals were 95% Sangiovese and 5% Merlot.
