Favorite wine of the past month:
The wine is dedicated to the founder of San Patrignano, Vincenzo. For those who don't know San Patrignano, it is a rehabilitation facility for those with drug abuse problems. It also involves the same people in the making of various food products and wines. It is a wonderful institution that has helped over 20,000 people since it started in 1978. This wine was a nice expression of Sangiovese di Romagna with supple tannins, good acidity, red fruit and spice aromas and flavors. It is aged in large barrels and then spends time in the bottle before being released into the market. I like this wine and I like to support the projects that San Patrignano undertakes. Not an inexpensive wine for these times, I think it is a good value for the price.
