More open and liberal than Il Poggio, this wine has damp earth, leather and black coffee aromas. The flavors lean toward cherry and berry, with leathery accents providing a balancing offset. The finish is dark and chewy; it's something to mull, ponder and enjoy. The structure and perfect balance say give it three or four years before it peaks. Editors' Choice. —M.S.
