Big, brawny and bold, ready to drink as long as it gets 90+ mins of air, otherwise the tannins can be a little too bitter. Otherwise just a lovely example of the DOCG; still can't believe it was only $15.

Ordered bottle at Casa Mia in Scottsdale. Good bottle of wine - balanced, very food friendly (at 13.5%). Somewhat light, with initial fruit, but deeper (earthier) flavors lurking underneath. Drys out a bit on the finish. Priced a bit steep at restaurant pricing, but would definitely buy again if I can find it retail.
