"The 2015 Casa Raia Bevilo is a blend of 90% Sangiovese and 10% Cabernet and Merlot that is vinified in stainless steel and then aged 2 years in barrique and up to 6 months in bottle before release.
The striking color of the wine is a nearly impenetrable garnet color that fades only slightly to ruby at the rim of the glass. Loads of fresh flowers, crushed black cherry, new leather and cocoa powder mark the exquisite nose of this stylish red.
On the palate the wine equally impresses. The plushness of the mouthfeel is seductive and coats your palate with juicy flavors of black plum, black cherry, mocha and hints of eucalyptus. Fine but firm tannins are part of the package so you may want to decant this for an hour or better yet, lay it down for 2 years. A wonderful effort that is made even more impactful by an outstanding vintage and as “Super Tuscans” go, an incredible value around $40. 94 points." - John Fodera's Tuscan Vines
