Overall Impression: A nice old-world wine from a fantastic Italian region. It paired beautifully with the grilled steak, which rounded it out. It seems to be a wine that requires a hearty dish. The lack of orange tinge around the edges leads us to believe we should get another bottle and cellar for a few more years to see how it evolves.
