100% Sangiovese A touch reduced on the nose but showing a fine array of dark fruits, wild herbs with a medicinal touch, dried flowers, red soil notes and fine dusky Tuscan spice notes with a lovely suggestion of white mushroom adding freshness. Rch and almost chewy on entry, there’s a nice base of tannin and acid here supporting the rich fruit but not really sticking out though the acid impression does grow in the mouth. the fruit is a bit towards the dark end for sangiovese with preserved wild strawberry and dark cherry flavors all wrapped up in earthy spice and savory herbal accents. There’s a lot going on here and it’s rather attractive with a blend of fruit and savory flavors but the wine does drop off a bit on the finish when the tannins finally take control. This needs food but is a pretty sophisticated choice at this price point. 87pts

Oh wow a low-dollar winner winner. Very luscious on the tongue. Then you get some nice berry and even some stone fruit flavors. Then you get the Tuscan acid that I love so much. Interestingly enough, I don't see this a a spaghetti-with-red-sauce accompaniment. I would go with cheeses with sliced apples or pears. US$7.97 at Costco in Chino Hills.

My rating 89 : Nice firm restrained Toscan with long elegant nose. Nose has some staying power even a day later

The 2011 Casamatta Rosso is an attractive, juicy wine bursting with sweet red berries, flowers, licorice, mint and spices. It shows lovely body and depth in a fresh, vinous style best suited for near-term drinking. Aging should not be a problem, as I imagine most bottles will be long gone by the time that is an issue. The Casamatta Rosso is a terrific value, too. Anticipated maturity: 2012andndash;2014.
