What a great opportunity to try a rare 5-star vintage! This wine is a great effort from the Italian producer Canalicchio di Sopra, and is drinking beautifully right now. Bright red fruits are intertwined with anise, wildflowers, and moist potting soil, fading into a backdrop of darker spice and herbs. The warm sun from the vintage is carried through on the palate with an explosive juiciness from the ripe fruit, but the taut acidity and gritty tannins that you find on the finish are indicative of the cooler nights in 2015.
