The Mansalto Castello Rapale IGT Toscana Rosso is a rich and complex wine that reflects its Cabernet-dominant blend. The nose presents aromas of red and black fruits and some toasty vanilla from its time in French oak. The palate is long and persistent, with a nice balance between red/black fruits, some spice, and the tannins, resulting in a velvety wine with a long finish. It pairs really well with meat-based dishes or aged cheeses. It's in the same ballpark as the "Super Tuscan" wines, although at a more affordable price and more approachable when young.
