2019 Capezzana Barco Real di Carigna, Tuscany, Italy (5L)
Named after the historic Medici property known as "Barco Reale" - meaning Royal Property - which was established in 1626. Today Sangiovese, Cabernet and Canaiolo grow in this ancient area that was a hunting preserve surrounded by walls over 30 miles long. Barco Reale is a younger version of Carmignano that received DOC status in 1994.
Clear, polished nose of red and black berries with very restrained, nutty wood notes as well as floral and spicy nuances. Ripe, slightly warm, quite juicy fruit, again nutty wood spice, a hint of tobacco, crumbly, youthful tannin, some persistence, a touch of pepper, good to very good finish.
