2004 Tenuta di Capezzana Carmignano Barco Reale (Italy, Tuscany, Carmignano)

This is really a very nice QPR wine. Starts off a little shy right out of the bottle, but gets plush and silky with some air. Nice fruit, but still earthy and funky. At the $11.99 I bought it for, it was not only a ridiculously good price for this wine, but the wine performed superbly with home-made Tuscan pizza. If you like the style of Brunello, this is a great every-day alternative at a much lower price-tag (although the cepage is obviously different in this wine compared to Brunello). Even Antonio Galloni liked it.

I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.
