Tasting Notes
Just like Christmas morning, this wonderful Super-Tuscan styled wine is full of surprises. With the first enticing package all wrapped up in ribbon and string, there’s the definite aroma of caramel…and apples! A lingering scent of strawberry shortcake and a smidgen of pencil will tantalize your nose hairs, and if the finish of spice and plum doesn’t make you smile, then you’d better have another taste.
