Carpineto Farnito Toscana IGT 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon, $12.29-$29.99, 88+ points, poured a core opaque ruby trending a crushed black currant purple/red with a broad clear wine ring.
Aromatic violets, roses, cedar, clove, black currant, blackberries, and savory were good.
Full-bodied, good acidity, layered grainy tannins, and flavors reflective of the aromas were okay together.
Finished on plum notes, warm spices, drying tannin, and a well integrated 13.5% alcohol.
Though I was hoping for a more elegant Cabernet, at $12.29, I really have no complaints, and those which like a big heavy Cabernet will find this a great value.
