December was a month of Italian wines in my wine club, and the first I drank was this red wine from Tuscany.
The wine had a light, airy body and a rich garnet hue. Like most Tuscans I've had, it eschewed a fruity nose for scents of tar and tobacco, leather and cedar.
The taste had some red fruit to it, but it was meaty and smoky, too.
It opened up really well over time and was quite pleasant.
