Food Pairings for Piaggia Il Sasso Carmignano Tuscany Italy Sangiovese Blend
What a surprise since I picked this up after reading a brief article on Carmignano and thought to taste one. Amazing nose that reads like a basket of red fruit. First it's raspberry, then wild berries and then cherry cough drops followed up by cedar and saddle leather. The palate reveals sour cherries, creme fraiche and clove. Medium body with wonderfully brisk acidity and a nice long red berry finish.
Il Sasso is the perfect wine for cheese and grilled meats. A deep ruby red with an intense nose. Rich fruit and sweet spices on the palate. This Tuscan red is well structured with soft sweet tannins. A balanced wine that is persistent without being overpowering. Enjoy!
