Montreal Gazette/Palate Press: 2013 Fortissimo

On the nose, this supertuscan-style blend (bordeaux with a hint of sangiovese) made me long for a pasta dish, with hints of tomato paste and basil, on top of some very nice red fruit, with a touch of smoke and vanilla. On the palate, it’s smooth and coherent, classy with a lot of character.
