2008 Planeta CERASUOLO DI VITTORIA (Sicily)

This blend of Nero d'Avola and Frappatto was pretty decent on its own, but would probably be even better accompanying pasta with meat sauce.

Medium-light ruby garnet.  Intensely metallic-minerally, sour cherry nose, with spiced lemon notes.  Cherry, pine resin, and charcoal flavors on entry, quickly molting into very clingy, cherry/mineral flavors.  Good acidity, and a good finish.  Medium-full bodied.  B.  Was $22 at Spec's on Smith.
