Not a 'classico' or 'superiore', and not decanted.

Brilliant ruby-garnet red, deep clarity, and thin, clear legs. Nose of dried sage/basil, cherry, and a hint of leather. Dark cherry, herbs, and the softest touch of oak on the palate; tannins are integrated nicely, w/a mid-length finish of tart/sweet fruit and oak. Should continue to drink well for another 2-3 yrs.

Excellent food wine, and not too badly priced even for the restaurant. $28; 87-88 pts., definitely worth purchasing for casual dinners if it's in the mid-high teens retail.
