2006 Felsina Lucilla

The 2006 Felsina Lucilla, Toscana IGT is a nice value in the "Baby Super Tuscan" arena. A blend of 70% Sangiovese, 15% Cabernet and 15% Merlot, it has a nose packed with saddle leather, licorice and tart cherry. The palate is typically Italian with acidity in spades. Tough to enjoy on its own, but really shines with appropriate food such as tonight's Bistecca alla Fiorentina made with locally-sourced, grass-fed KC strip and arugula from our garden. Very nice value at $11.
