A striking entry-level wine, the 2013 Carnasciale is layered, sensual and deeply expressive today. Raspberry jam, cloves, espresso and sweet herbs are pushed forward in an open-knit, succulent wine that captures all the qualities of the 'Grand Vin' in miniature. Beams of tannin add grip to the finish. The 2013 is a subtle Carnasciale with striking aromatic and flavor nuance.
