La Spinetta Il Gentile 2006
Dark, dusty, no real fruit on the nose, maybe a little leather. Definite berries on palate, some sour cherry, a little pepper, very delicate and sophisticated, great balance, a nice finish. I learned that pugnolo is a Sangiovese clone grown in montepulciano
Just bought 6 of these from an online discounter based on the Parker review and I just don't love it. Ugh, 5 more to drink...or give away

The 2005 Gentile di Casanova (Sangiovese) is a dark, brooding wine packed with dark cherries, smoke, underbrush, leather and tar. There is terrific density, richness and energy, all of which come together in this stylish, generous red. The finish is refined and harmonious. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2013.
Aromas of coffee and berries follow through to a full body, with tangy fruit and a long, citrusy, fruity finish. Prugnolo Gentile (Sangiovese). Drink now.
Scents of super-ripe dark cherries, tobacco, spices and leather waft from the glass as the 2006 Il Gentile di Casanova opens up. A vein if minerality frames the fruit beautifully through to the long, creamy finish. The La Spinetta house style built on ripeness and textural depth is in evidence in this Sangiovese-based red but is not as overdone as in previous wines. This is a gorgeous juice. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2016.
