Bodegas Balbo Viñas de Balbo 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

This fine wine is bottled a few months after harvest in order to maintain all the characteristics of its lineage. Produced purely from Sangiovesse grapes, the winemaker used special techniques to create a light and fruity wine that is both transparent and brilliant ruby red in color. This wine is best enjoyed soon after bottling when its aroma and unique flavors are most abundant. It can be served as an aperitif, with appetizers, or with a variety of light meals. Ideal serving temperature: 57º - 60º F. (Available in 750ML and Magnum 1.5L) -SCORE 87 Pts. The Wine Report Magazine Aug/Sep 2006

Color: Medium dark red with subdued pinkish undertones Nose: Previously burned matches, unused matches, strawberry soda (like Fanta), salt, prunes, smokey barbecue sauce Flavor: Blackberries, citrus, and wood transition into pencil shavings, tomatoes, and black pepper. Really big mouth feel with very assertive acid. Finish: Lots of tannins balanced by the acid and alcohol. Long and satisfying, with lingering flavors of smoke and tomatoes.

Color is deep ruby (for a rosé wine), much darker than most. Has strong oak on the nose with hints of watermelon. On the palate the wine starts with strong citrus and floral undertones. Mid-palate, the wine has a lot of strawberry and a little bit of acid. It finishes too hot (too much alcohol) and with a little too much oak, sort of like chardonnay. Leaves a very clean aftertaste like your mouth feels 3-4 minutes after biting a lemon.
