Alicante
· Country: Italy
· Region: Tuscany
· Vintage: 2013
· Score: 90

Tasting Notes
A fresh, clean red with delicate fruit of dried strawberry, lemon and cherry. Light body. Bright acidity. So much fun to drink. Like a delicate pinot noir. It's hard to find a pure alicante from Tuscany and even harder to find an outstanding one.

Unlitro
· Country: Italy
· Region: Tuscany
· Vintage: 2013
· Score: 91

Tasting Notes
Forward soft cherry, very Burgundian style, elegant and balanced, with a soft mouthfeel, and stone and adequate tannins on the finish. Juicy and fun - in a big bottle for even more fun. Drink now.
