Disappointing. I haven't had an exciting Carmigniano in decades. Bad luck I guess. This was deeply colored, but with a dried out flavor profile.
Dark ruby/garnet color. Nose had a little dried cherry/prune-tinged fruit, but is mostly dominated by crackly old dried leaves aromas. In the mouth, it's austere and mostly dried out, with only a fleeting hint of fruit. The finish basically consists of vanishing flavors and lingering dry, leafy flavored tannin. D+. Was $19.99 at The Italian Store in Arlington. Imported by the usually dependable deGarzia Imports. Avoid at any price . . . it's just not very pleasant.
