The nose keeps changing on me- at first I got coffee and barn, now I am getting hints of Maraschino cherry. This wine has good balance and structure, but no predominant flavors stand out to me. A bit of dark berry, a bit of cedar, a bit of what might be tobacco (but I've never tried any tobacco product so I can't say for sure). I hate to leave a bad score since I can tell it's well made, but it's just not exciting me right now. Perhaps an awkward point in its development? Second day: Nose is generic fruit/a hint of sawdust. The palate now has almost a syrah-like pepperiness combined with dark berries. Again, decent wine but just not doing much for my palate, and I definitely don't get the 90 WA gave it.

This is a nice wine. It has a few more tannins than the last sangiovese that I tried. It has a fruit forward style and is an easy drinking wine.

On the nose very floral (violets). Plenty of red berries, leather, subtle oak and spice. The typical Sangiovese sour cherry dominates the palate, with blackberry and fresh fruit flavors. Subtle vanilla, earth, leather and spice on the medium finish. The acidity doesn’t overwhelm, making it perfect if you haven’t tried a pure Sangiovese before, nice and easy-drinking and not overly complex.

Left to breathe and it came alive. Herbs and cherries anyone? Good value.

Flowers, spice and a leathery musk on the nose. Full bodied and replete with ripe fruit this offering has definition, clarity and a smooth, lingering, slightly peppery finish. Great wine with pizza, meat dishes and cheeses. My kind of wine – outstanding value. 90.

Herersquo;s a highly recommendable Sangiovese-based wine from Molise in Southern Italy. Itrsquo;s a well-made wine with soft and plush notes of black cherry and milk chocolate with a rich, succulent finish. Itrsquo;s perfect for stay-home family dinners by the fire.

The 2006 Sangiovese Terre Degli Osci is simply gorgeous. This superbly balanced red offers generous, super-ripe blueberry, spice and sweet toasted oak along with a soft, accessible personality. Despite its very ripe style, the wine remains surprisingly fresh. Anticipated maturity: 2007ndash;2009.

The 2007 Sangiovese is made in a super-ripe, racy style, with plenty of forward, plump fruit. In the glass, notes of earthiness, spices and tobacco emerge, adding further complexity. I loved this soft-textured Sangiovese for its sheer appeal. Anticipated maturity: 2008ndash;2010.

The 2005 Sangiovese IGT offers an amazing display of strawberry and black cherry fruit intermixed with floral, new saddle leather, and earth notes. Aged in large wood foudres, it is a stunning example of Sangiovese that should drink well for 2ndash;3 years. This wine represents incredible value for the money.

The 2008 Sangiovese Terre degli Osci is an incredibly delicious, full-bodied wine with gorgeous clarity and definition. Made in a bold, fruit-driven style, the wine offers terrific depth and a long, polished finish. This harmonious red is a knockout! Anticipated maturity: 2009ndash;2012.

One of the worldrsquo;s best values in Sangiovese is the 2004 Sangiovese IGT. Aged six months in large foudres, it offers up aromas of strawberries, black cherries, damp earth, spice box, and fruit cake. This expressive, medium-bodied, fleshy Italian red is meant to be drunk over the next 1ndash;2 years. Buy this one by the case!

Dunkles Rubin. Viel rote und schwarze Beerenfrucht und Edelholznoten im offenen Bouquet, unterstützt von einer feinen Note von schwarzem Pfeffer. Köstlich ausgereifte Fruchtnoten im Gaumen, schwarze Pflaumen und Heidelbeeren, auffallend schönes Fruchtsüsse-Extrakt, eine Spur Lakritze im Abgang.
