**+ $$$ Palazzetto Ardi Entusiasmo Rosso Cabernet Sauvignon, Veneto, Italy, 2006 - Wine Tasting & Review

Find Palazzetto Ardi prices and retail availability.

Original Tasting and Review:

By way of background: This is Palazzetto Ardi Entusiasmo Rosso, Veneto, Italy, 2006, a cabernet sauvignon.

In the glass: Entusiasmo shows as light to mid red in the glass.

On the nose: Poured with a brief decant and swirled vigorously, this Venetian cabernet sauvignon shows a bright and lightly funky nose of muddle strawberry.

On the palate: The first element on the palate is a light, sweet red currant.  Then prickly acids come to the roof of your mouth, with light sweetness and low tannins.

And the wrap-up: The finish is clean, light and sweet.

In summary: Overall,  rates two stars on the five-star Spirit of Wine scale, with a plus for its easy friendliness.  An unusual cabernet sauvignon, to say the least.  A bit more like pinot noir meets lightly sweet rose.
