TASTING NOTE: Sourced from the Teldeschi and Ramazzotti vineyards, with 12% Petite Sirah and 6% Carignane, this impressively bold, inky wine is undeniably pretty on the nose, recalling strawberries and cherries. Juicy, big and delicious, it has memorable structure and elegance that balances the ripeness of its fruit. Score - 93 (Virginie Boone, Wine Enthusiast, Aug. 1, 2017) Price $ 58.95
