Wine & SpiritsA sensation of crushed gravel gives Siccagno a beautiful, grippy texture that supports lively flavors of red plum laced with licorice and smoke. The wine rested 22 months in large Slavonian casks, which rounded out the flavors without imparting any new oak sweetness. The flavors take on notes of bloody steak and iodine that lend a sanguine depth and suggest a match with seared ribeye..
