    (From 2005 Vintage) Rating: 92/100 - As reviewed by Wine & Spirits Magazine on 04/09. This integrates its oak after a few hours of air, revealing aromas of tart berries and dried mint. There's a sanguine aspect to the tannin, bloody and wild, that seems to complement the cool forest spice and high-toned cherry flavors. Match this wine's appealing rusticity with something equally untamed and Tuscan, like a rag├╣ of wild boar.
