Lungarotti Rubesco 2009

Lungarotti Rubesco 750ML 2009      
Sku: 10118

Tasting notes
A red with balanced body and a fine ruby colour. Its aromas are typically spicy and consist of pepper and sweet tobacco; the background notes hint at jam and violet. A pleasant drinkability with good concentration, mature and harmonious tannins with a long-lasting fruity finish.

 Wine Advocate 90 points (Feb 2013)
A delicious, value-priced red, the 2009 Rubesco is laced with sweet cherries, tobacco, anise and leather. The aromas and flavors build nicely in the glass as this radiant, polished wine shows off its considerable personality. This is a terrific wine for the money. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2019.
