This Tuscan red from Col D’Orcia brings the intensity, from its violet-red color through the fragrant, fruit-forward nose, to the decadent finish. Loads of succulent softness contained within the full-bodied structure bring flavors of blackberry and plum dusted with grilled rosemary and scorched earth. Chew tannins and a long finish make this a 95-point win with James Suckling, who pronounces it the “best in a long time.”
A wine with dried violets, burnt blackberry essence, charcoal, treacle, resin and baking spices. Full body, very chewy tannins and a long, very decadent finish. Best in a long time.
