Tenuta Belguardo Maremma Toscana 2013
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Maremma Toscana|
A red of great purity and polish, offering black cherry, blackberry, spice and herb flavors, this evokes tobacco, graphite and leather nuances as it builds nicely on the palate. Finishes with grip, harmony and complexity, as well as terrific length. Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Drink now through 2028. 1,083 cases made.
Succulent red cherry, raspberry jam, flowers, mint and new French oak meld together in the 2013 Tenuta Belguardo. Forward and open-knit, the 2013 will drink well with minimal cellaring. The 2013 is not particularly complex, but the purity of the fruit is striking. This is a strong vintage for the flagship Tenuta Belguardo, Mazzei's Cabernet Sauvignon/Cabernet Franc blend.
