Illuminati 2013 Lumen Riserva Red (Controguerra)
Heady tones of tobacco, menthol and earth carry over a core of dense brandied cherry on the nose of this blend of Montepulciano and Cabernet Sauvignon. The full-bodied palate is filled out by rich tones of blackberry and dark cherry that are lifted by earthy accents. It shows a firm grip of tannins and pulsing acidity to keep all the heft in check.

All tastings reported in the Buying Guide are performed blind. Typically, products are tasted in peer-group flights of from 5-8 samples. Reviewers may know general information about a flight to provide context—vintage, variety or appellation—but never the producer or retail price of any given selection. When possible, products considered flawed or uncustomary are retasted.
