The Locations I4 (Italy, $19) is the fourth red blend from Italy curated by Dave Phinney, whose other Locations wines come from Spain, France and other places. The I4 is a blend of negroamaro and nero d’avola from the Southern region of Puglia and barbera from Piemonte in the North. Like most of Phinney’s blends, this is both rich and smooth, with fairly high alcohol, at 14.5 percent. It has bright fruit and spices on the nose, and dried red fruit and figs on the palate. It also has a fairly long finish. Available at Total Wine & More.
