Di Majo Norante Sangiovese Terre Degli Osci IGT 2009
Bouquet is rich and generous. Pretty tight - definitely needs to breathe a lot. When sufficiently aired its mouthfeel fills out and shows off a ton of flavor. Mild tannins and typical acid provide hefty structure.

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: 2008-2010.
This is a Sangiovese without the rough edges and high acidity. Made in the New World style (ripe fruit like strawberries) with some earth and spice, this is softer and really approachable. Great alternative to Chianti.
Here's a highly recommendable Sangiovese-based wine from Molise in Southern Italy. It's a well-made wine with soft and plush notes of black cherry and milk chocolate with a rich, succulent finish. It's perfect for stay-home family dinners by the fire.
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: 2009-2012.
Medium-full bodied red with concentrated dark cherry and plum flavors. Ripe fruit, mineral and a luscious texture deliver surprising complexity for this price. Great value.
One of the world'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 1-2 years. Buy this one by the case!
