87 Points | International Wine Cellar , November/December 2009
($65) Good medium red. Rather undifferentiated aromas of strawberry and nutty, chocolatey oak. Sweet, lush and fat, with the smoky oak component carrying through in the mouth. A bit rustic if not drying, with the tannins reaching the front teeth and currently cutting off the fruit. This struck me as a bit evolved for the year. (Don't miss this producer's splendid 2008 Moscato d'Asti, by the way; its exotic floral, oily peach and apricot qualities reminded me of viognier and it boasts terrific concentration of fruit.) (Marc de Grazia; numerous importers, including Michael Skurnik Wines, Syosset, NY; Robert Houde Wines, Bensenville, IL; and Estate Wines Ltd., San Rafael, CA)
