2011 Tenute Girolamo Monte Tre Carlini Negroamaro Puglia

Blackberry and black cherry with hints of tobacco, anise and smoke on the inviting nose. Dark and lush up front as scent flavors transition to Ceylon tea, fine minerals and soft tannins on the dry finish. This screams for lamb; maybe some roasted beats and white potatoes. Now I’m hungry. Thanks Italy. 😉  $19.99
