2009 Villa Antinori
Varietal: Super Tuscan Blend
(Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Syrah)
Food Pairing: Bison Burgers with Cabernet Onions and Wisconsin Cheddar (Recipe)
Inky Ruby in color with black plum, black cherry, raspberry, currants and purple flowers on the nose. Cinnamon, allspice and vanilla show the oak side of this wine. The finish is a bit of chocolate covered cherry fading into tree sap. The nose was intense with all of the red and black fruit and the palate and finish is a bit of a let down. High Tannins and high alcohol.
