Has a dirty earthy nose and a pleasant deep brick red color. It isn't overpowering -- actually surprisingly light. The finish is pleasantly dry.
balanced oak and smoke flavours compliment red cherry fruits.....good value at £12 from reputable producer
Not as good as the 97 or 99 but a good drinker for the price
Hot, earthy nose - very rustic. The rusticity continues in the mouth, its peaty, barnyard, with hints of straw. Fairly full bodied with a short, but powerful finish. Not for me.
This is one our all-time favorite wines. During dinner atOsteria via Stato in Chicago, this was recommended when we mentioned we enjoy Sangiovese wines. It was perfect with our entrees, and even now - after several dinners and cases - this is a wonderful example of a classic Sangiovese. Enjoy!
