CapAnna 2010 Rosso Di Montalcino, $25.99, 90 points, appears as a deep ruby red trending orange/purple toward the broad clear glass wall.
A toasty bourbon aroma has hints of freshly turned earth, flowers, and vanilla.
The medium body carries good acidity and edgy, but rather smooth and approachable tannin which mitigates this wine's lack of fruit, as it leans solely on red and black cherry that trails aggressively into the finish with mild spice and intense bourbon notes (14.5% alcohol).
Though I bought this wine with a gift card, when the Italian sales day arrives, I expect to pay $22.09, making this a good buy.
