Capezzana Barco Reale di Carmignano 2018

Dark in color with a nice red cherry nose. On the mid palate the wine displays some nice smooth red cherries along with some zesty tomato notes. On the medium length finish the wine displays some nice velvety tannins and smooth acidity. A lovely wine that will compliment many foods, we paired it with Maltese baked macaroni and it was a hit! I would give it an 88+, which for the price is a great deal. If you like your wines a little smoother this one will age nicely for another 2-5 years I would guess and become more integrated, although, personally, I like it just how it is, I’ll be going back for more!!
