"There's a sanguine edge to this firm red, with a streak of minerality underscoring flavors of sour and red cherry, cigar box and red currant, with just a touch of sun-dried tomato. There's a dense weave, yet this is still light-weight and silky on the palate. Best from 2013 through 2027. 725 cases imported."
"Tedeschi's wines made in the traditional appassimento style always boast their own unique style and personality. The house style is sweeter, plumber, denser and more astringent than most. This offers endless intensity in the form of moise pipe tobacco, sweet plum and mesquite wood."
