A big wine with a big price, F de Fuentespina is toasty and dark like blacktop. The nose features scents of savory sauce and marinade, while the feel is thick, rich and creamy. Dark fruit is front and center, but it's undeniably saucy and roasted, which may be due to partial aging in Eastern European oak. It also weighs in at a hefty 15% alcohol.
