Franchetti 2014 Red (Terre Siciliane)
Made with Petit Verdot and Cesanese d'Affile grown on the slopes of Mount Etna, this full-bodied red entices with aromas of graphite, Mediterranean brush, flint, black plum and a whiff of camphor. Despite its obvious power and richness, it boasts an undeniable elegance, offering lush blackberry, black cherry and exotic spice alongside velvety tannins and fresh acidity. The juicy fruit, freshness and tannic structure seamlessly support the considerable alcohol. Drink through 2029. Kerin O’Keefe
