Donna Laura Ali Sangiovese di Toscana 2012

External Review:

Donna Laura, based in the northern Chianti Classico region, crafts this versatile Sangiovese; aging in stainless steel tanks for a year before bottling, giving the wine a dark-toned fruit flavor. Pure, true terroir-based Sangiovese delivered at an affordable price is the calling card of this terrific new Tuscan producer. Located in the Castelnuovo Berardenga area of Chianti Classico, Donna Laura produces three cuvees of exceptional flavor and intensity. Owner Lia Tolaini-Banville utilizes two distinct Sangiovese clones to achieve both earthy, peppery depth and a lively fruit aspect. This cuvee, Ali (named for Lia's daughter,) sees a year of aging in stainless steel before bottling. Its dark-toned fruit evenly moderated in the mouth by a slight spice and nice acidity.
