The label is from San Fabiano Calcinaia, and the wine opens with clean berry aromas and plenty of oak. The palate is overtly fruity, with bright cherry and blueberry flavors. The finish brings back some of that powerful oak from the nose, and you taste mocha and coffee as a result. Well balanced, so the whole sings louder than the parts. —M.S.
