Badia a Coltibuono Sangioveto 2007
Suggested pairings include ribollita (Tuscan bread, bean, and vegetable soup), wild game, and stews, as well as aged cheeses and chocolate.
Fascinating style of cedar, berry, cherries and plums follow through to a full body, with fine tannins and an almost oily mouth feel. Love the finish. This is balanced, sexy and seductive. Pure Sangiovese. Made from organic grapes. Drink now but will improve with age for years to come.
The 2007 Sangioveto di Toscana is another wine that comes across as relatively understated and quite classic relative to most 2007s. There is gorgeous delineation in an expressive fabric of sweet red cherries and flowers, with hints of tobacco and cedar that flow effortlessly. The wine turns radiant on the mid-palate and finish. The 2007 is one of the most elegant Sangiovetos I have tasted from Badia a Coltibuono and hopefully points to a more consistent level of overall quality for the future. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2027.
