Poggio Al Tufo Tommasi Alicante 2007

 Tuscany, Italy

 $18.95 at LCBO

 Alicante Bouschet is cross of Petit Bouschet and Grenache.
 I would say, that is something familiar of Grenache is in this wine. 
 Different but interesting, a bit edgy, almost rustic.
Deep ruby color.
On the nose licorice, cedar notes, red berries. Getting little floral later.
On the palate-dry, medium to full-bodied, medium tannins, balanced acidity, licorice, oak, spices, plums.  Lot's of minerality, red cherries. Long, jammy finish.
