Col d'Orcia 2013 Rosso di Montalcino (DOC), $13.59-$15.99, 89 points, poured a core maroon transitioning to a bright cranberry red at the very broad clear wine ring and glass edge.
Aromas of red raspberry and lavender were a bit shy, but pleasing.
Medium-bodied with typically good acidity and rather scratchy tannins supported flavors reflective of the aromas with cola and fennel notes.
Finished long on a hint of bourbon, warm spices, and the apropos 14% alcohol.
Paired perfectly with my spiced rack of lamb.
This Rosso makes an excellent table wine at an excellent price (hard to beat the QPR).
