    Winemaker's Notes:

    Brilliant ruby-red in color with loads of ripe blackberry, strawberry and currant on the nose. The plush fruit flavors are deliciously integrated with subtle hints of mocha, tobacco and oak spice. Full and rich with soft tannins, the lush layers of fruit and spice are backed by lively acidity. This everyday Sangiovese is the perfect choice for barbecues, pastas, pizza and sausages.

    Critical Acclaim:

    La Carraia's 2009 Sangiovese is a big, deep red laced with dark fruit, French oak, and spices, all of which flow in an extroverted multidimensional expression of Sangiovese. The finish is long, harmonious and juicy. This isn't for the timid, but readers who enjoy a full-throttle style of Sangiovese will find much to admire. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2013.

    Great Sangiovese for the price. Bright fruit and balanced acidity makes this a great food wine.

    Bigger and bolder than a typical Sangiovese, making it a great everyday w/dinner wine at a bargain price.
