Ciacci Piccolomini d'Aragona Sant'Antimo Ateo 2019

|Ciacci Piccolomini d'Aragona
The 2019 Ateo, a blend of Merlot and Cabernet, is very pretty, fruit-forward and spunky, with wild cherries, sweet spice and a hint of tangerine. This is soft and enveloping, with ultra-ripe red and hints of blue fruit balanced by brisk acidity. It tapers off long, leaving a coating of primary fruits, hints of violet and mint. It's a fun expression intended for early yet highly enjoyable drinking pleasure.
