92pointsIlluminati 2011 Lumen Riserva Red (Controguerra)

A blend of 70% Montepulciano and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, this starts off with an enveloping nose of baked cherry, hoisin, olive and dried herbs. The medium-bodied palate is well-defined and full of life, boasting fresher cherry and currant flavors speckled with dried tobacco leaf, all floating on a persistent river of acidity and finely meshed tannins. It's approachable now but should hold well through 2023. Alexander Peartree
