Castello Monaci Aiace 2014
Plum cake and baked raspberry flavors are accented by oak spice and licorice snap notes in this grippy, medium- to full-bodied red. Bright and expressive, with a lingering, mineral-tinged finish. Best from 2019 through 2024. 200 cases imported.
Slightly sauced red berry aromas meld with earth and floral tones on the nose. There's a smooth feel to the medium-bodied palate, with sandy, fine-grained tannins and zesty acidity housing flavors of tilled earth and racy red fruit. A lean graphite edge runs from start to finish, keeping this focused and perfectly food friendly.
