Collazzi Toscana 2005 ($28 US) RATING: 96.

One of the world’s great wines. Recently tasted this one with a couple of the gals in my life. A dark and significant wine with notes of oregano, green tea, green bell pepper and vanilla. Ongoing layers reveal baking spices, cinnamon, brioche-like flavours of custardy bread, and dark bitter chocolate. A very big wine, stunningly integrated and complex with good acidity. A long, seamless and balanced finish. Masculine nose, feminine finish. Overall, the gals felt that this was “Clark Gable in a glass.” Not in Ontario. We enjoyed it in New York.
