Wine lovers, rejoice—today is National Red Wine Day. To celebrate, we’re turning to a country that plays host to several different regions and styles of red wines: Italy.
These six beautiful red wines reviewed by Monica Larner are all rated 99 points and higher—making them deemed worthy of your cellar.
“This wine takes us to the heart of Nebbiolo.”
“Man and nature come together with perfect precision and harmony in the 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Cerretalto.”
“This is a cellar keeper.”
“This is an extraordinary creation that bursts from the glass with a level of distinct intensity and elegance that is nothing short of breathtaking.”
“Cabernet Franc is quickly becoming a headline grape along the Tuscan Coast, and this beautiful creation builds a rock-solid case for that claim.”
“The mouthfeel is feather light in texture, but don't underestimate its power or persistence.”
