This Super Tuscan is a blend of 80% Sangiovese, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 5% Cabernet Franc.  Garnet in color, mostly clear and bright.  The nose is great with cherries, chocolate, dust, black cherries, spice and tobacco.  Full bodied.  Juicy acidity.  Great plush texture.  Firm tannins.  On the palate, black cherries, char some forest floor notes.  Young but complex and deep.  Delicious.  This is great on its own but even better with food.  It worked well with mushroom ravioli.  It certainly can be drunk now and for the next twenty years.
