OK, maybe you think 4* for a $9 wine is too much, but I ranked it this high because it is such an extraordinary deal! First off, 2010 in Montalcino is a truly sensational vintage and yes, this wine comes from Montalcino but because of its grape blend of Sangiovese, Merlot, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon it can't take one of the "Montalcino" DOCs. It does, however, have incredible aromatics--bold dark fruit flavors that tantalize your palate as its supple yet very structured core opens across your palate. This spectacular red wine really shows excellent balance and a depth of flavors that is amazing at this price. OK, how can they do that? Because this wine isn't normally at this price; it was the last of the vintage in the California warehouse of a New York importer who decided it would be better if they could move on to the next vintage and move this wine all at once. We swooped in at the opportunity and took all that was left. You should hurry because this wine won't last long!
Drink from 2014 to 2018
