I Balzini Red Label Super Tuscan Toscana IGT Rosso 2008


















I love Super Tuscan varietals, that is a given.  They are usually bold and have a great finish, which any wine lover can appreciate.  Now don’t make the mistake of popping this bottle and drinking it right away, you won’t get the full experience.  Would you go to a nice restaurant and rush through your meal?  No, you would take your time, enjoy the experience and get all your moneys worth.  The same goes for this wine, make sure you decant it and if you don’t own a decanter plan to open this two hours before you intend on drinking it.

A blend of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, this wine gives off hints of raspberry, cherry and oak.  When we popped this bottle we had a nice rich red sauce over pasta with slow roasted pork.  It’s more medium bodied than full, but still a great buy if you can find it.  I paid around $20 for this Tuscan import.

Consume, enjoy.
