This wine is really what I'd like all Malbecs to be. It's got a great vanilla, oak, and leather nose with just a hint of blackberry. The finish is just a note of a spice and oak on a dried tobacco leaf. I cannot describe the subtle but excellent nuances of this wine, it's just outstanding and a great example of what I think Malbec is and should always be.
I've got a few of these in my collection now and will keep some to see how they age. For the price this is a GREAT example of a Tuscan wine.
I questioned this wines "viability" with a screw cap as I still prefer good old cork. Anyway, slight vanilla, nice oak, POW the fruit hits, and a subtle finish...perhaps just a bit of tobacco? My wife and I were VERY pleased with this one. We had a cheese course before the meal and kept drinking it right on through with a tasty eggplant/tomato/fennel pasta sauce on some hearty whole wheat pasta.
