Castello Banfi Cum Laude Toscana 2013 Red Wine (IGT), $32.99-$35.99, 92 points, poured to an opaque core of ruby red grading much brighter at the clear rim and leggy glass bowl.
Aromatic ripe blackberries, loam, cocoa, and a floral vibe were excellent.
The sleek full body showed good acidity and a lush round underlayment of supportive tannins.
Fabulous flavors reflective of the aromas with a periphery of Damson plum transitioned from an early palate smooth delivery to a more texturally tight offering.
Finished long on the trailing palate, Red raspberry, an easy spiciness, and a well-balanced 13.5% alcohol.
Paired perfectly with our lamb-kabobs.
Varietals were 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 25% Sangiovese, and 15% Syrah.
