    Region: Tuscany, Italy

    Varietal: Sangiovese

    Item no. 98061

    Winemaker's Notes:

    Deep black plum, ripe blackberry and rose petal aromas fill the nose of this wine. The mouth shows abundant fresh fruit, with loads of red cherry, blackberry and plummy flavors, hints of mocha, and smooth, firm tannins.

    85% Sangiovese, 15% Merlot and Cabernet

    Critical Acclaim:

    This integrates its oak after a few hours of air, revealing aromas of tart berries and dried mint. There’s a sanguine aspect to the tannin, bloody and wild, that seems to complement the cool forest spice and high-toned cherry flavors. Match this wine’s appealing rusticity with something equally untamed and Tuscan, like a ragù of wild boar."

    After reading the vintner's description, I hardly recognized this wine. I can't understand how W&S gave it 92 points. It has surprisingly little nose, and reminds me of some merlots with just one note in the palate. In addition, I thought is was just a little astringent alone. Red meat softened the taste, but overwhelmed the wine. Overall, I think I can do better for less.
