Cecchi COEVO 2009 I.G.T. Red Wine

Cecchi COEVO 2009 I.G.T. Red Wine, $42.49-$54.99, 92 points, poured core black trending rosewood red, a red that trailed onto the legs past the clear sliver of a rim ring (a bit unusual).
Roses and violets with lush ripe blackberries and a hint of cedar made for a lovely bouquet.
This lush full-bodied red wine was firmly supported with good acidity and potent tannin.
Flavors reflected the bouquet with hints of bay-leaf and dried herbs.
Finished bone-dry with accelerating tannin, a well integrated 13.5% alcohol, a hint of bourbon and mellow spice notes.
Varietals were 50% Sangiovese, 30% Petit Verdot 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 10% Merlot.
