By way of background, opening thoughts: This wine was introduced as part of the Glass of Italy program.


Original tasting and review : This is Casal Di Pari Montecucco Rosso DOC Ciarlone, Italy, 2009, finished at 13.5% alcohol.  It is a blend of Sangiovese, Merlot, Syrah and Petit Verdot.

In the glass:  Deep, dark red.

On the nose: Poured cool with a brief decant and swirled vigorously, shows sweet notes.

On the palate: The primary elements on the palate are in fact sweet red currant and an overall sweetly acidic tone.

In summary: Overall, rates two stars on the five-star Spirit of Wine scale, with a plus for being such fun.
