Bere Viticcio 2007
Red-black color. Nose of flowers with hints of honey, mild spice, and pepper. In the mouth medium acid and drying tannins that almost overpower the tart-sweet fruit. Fades fast in the mid-palate. Finishes with a mild butter and nut after taste. Tested on well-decanted bottle, fresh bottle might be better.Add winemaker's notes

Pretty decent IGT and a fair value at USD 15. Tested from a preservation machine at 60 deg F. Nose has hints of dusty floral and dark fruit. Decent acid on the attack, chaulky in the mouth with dusty leaves leading to sour-to-neutral ripe dark fruit (dark cherry and black currant, possibly blackberry) along with hints of wood and distinctive dirt taste. A bit watery on the palate. Reasonable balance. Dry. Body medium, acid medium, tannin medium. 13% abv. Super-Tuscan mix 50% sangio, 25% cab, 25% merlot.
This is a full bodied, dry, "good earth" wine with balanced tannins. Drink with "country food" such as steaks and chops, braised beef, or if you're thinking Italian, meatballs and spaghetti. Let this wine breath (my experience is that it really opened up on the second day).
