Wine Spectator 88 Best Buy points - A traditional style, featuring a chalky texture to the earthy mix of lemon preserves, orange peel, honey, hazelnut and wild mushroom notes. Complex yet lean, with a firm finish. Drink now through 2018.—N.W.
Scents of beeswax and crushed pignoli meld with this wine’s tart cherry flavors. It feels rustic and a little reduced, needing bottle age to develop greater depth and elegance.
