La Carraia Sangiovese Umbria IGT 2010
Editorial Reviews for La Carraia Sangiovese Umbria IGT
This smells very much of Cabernet, black currant and bell pepper on the nose. Once the Cabiness calms down, this shows a bit of earthiness, some tree bark tones and hard, black fruit. Rather soft in the mouth, this is broad and a bit chewy with bright black cherry and black currant fruit. There’s fine balance here and the wine is bright if a bit simple in the mouth. The fruit remains taut and fresh supported by small tannins on the modest finish. Muscular and dark. At this price, a good value. 85pts
Dank, dirty red fruit nose, very smooth body, not a lot of punch to it. Mild tropical fruits in the finish
Very grapey on the nose with a bit of acidity showing through. I sense some flecks of blackberry and bramble and the palate is light and easy with a bit of an acidic/cherry finish.
