Innocenti Vignalsole 2011 Toscana IGT, $21.24-$27.99, 91 points, poured pristine and nearly opaque ruby trending sunburst orange/red at the clear wine ring.
Complex aromas of cedar, truffle, black olives, pomegranate, and roses were very good and propitious.
The medium to medium-plus body managed good acidity, layered and building tannins which were a bit more than supportive (I prefer my red wines with more rather than less tannins).
Robust flavors reflective of the aromas were excellent, and with a touch of plum, mint, and tar added a cerebral complexity.
Finished long on the trailing palate, hot spice notes, and a well integrated, but warm 15% alcohol.
