A nose of dark fruits and spice, dark garnet in color. A medium to full bodied red, with black cherry, blackberry, cherry vanilla coke and spice on long finish. This little known winery always delivers, seek it out.

2010 Carpineta Fontalpino Do Ut Des Toscana IGT SuperTuscan Blend
Offers lots of ripe bright fruit, raspberries, cherries and blackberries to name a few, then there's exotic spices, cured meats and incense layered on top. Lovely focus and balance with silky tannins and mouth-watering acidity leave you begging for more. Composed of 34% Merlot, 33% Sangiovese, 33% Cabernet Sauvignon which were picked by hand. Lots of potential here, I can even see this even meriting another point in time, but it needs to flesh out a bit for now. (Best 2015-2025)

I am a bit disappointed. I didn't taste the complexity as many suggested. Too simple and too young.
