Made with 90% Nerello Mascalese and 10% Nerello Cappuccio, this opens with aromas of French oak, toasted hazelnut and underbrush. On the palate, close-grained, not very persistent yet drying tannins support dried cherry, bitter almond and a hint of coffee bean. Drink sooner rather than later. Kerin O’Keefe

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.
