Wine AdvocateThe 2010 Vigna d'Alceo Vino da Tavola is Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot folded so deep within one another, it's difficult to hear the varietal voice of the wine. Dried cherries and blackberry appear as primary tones, but the wine also offers a good dose of spice, black olive, rosemary twig and dried plum. The wine takes its time to open in the glass and will probably require much patience in terms of cellar aging as well.
