Secco-Bertani I.G.T. Verona 2009 Red Wine, $21.24-$24.99, 90 points, appeared copper colored with a deep ruby core and a broad transparent rim.
Loads of flowers on the nose, with mostly lilac and lavender, but red cherry bursts through as well.
Though this red wine is mostly Corvina with dollops of Syrah, Sangiovese, and Cabernet Sauvignon, it was reminiscent of Spanish Garnacha, though a raisin-like flavor was added to its red cherry floral one-two-punch.
The medium body carried fair acidity with mellow tannin.
Finished fair on a trailing palate, a well integrated 13.5% alcohol, and a touch of brie and bourbon.
