Black and thick with a heady garnet edge.  Dusty linen and wilted floral with pruney ripe fruit and egg-white fills the nose.  Crisp minerality combined with deep fruit create an als0-ran substance of slightly aged Chianti.  Clean and bright in the mouth, chewingly thick and ripe with nice acidic substance alongside rich fruit with a certain patina obligatory of 10YO IGT.  A completely serviceable restaurant wine and probably the bargain on this list.

2008 TERRABIANCA Campaccio Reserva ‘Selezione’ 70/30 Sangiovese/Cab IGT Tuscano Italy 14.0
