Pietra Santa Supertuscan Blend Cienega Valley Sassolino 2005
Sassolino was made exclusively from grapes grown on the Pietra Santa estate. Sassolino means “little stone” in Italian, a reference to our gravel-rich soils. This Super Tuscan blend is made from Cabernet Sauvignon, Colorino, and Sangiovese. The wine has robust fruit and tastes of black cherry with hints of chocolate and oak, finished with soft round tannins.
RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.
Super Tuscan made from Cabernet, Colorino, and Sangiovese. Medium bodied with bold berry flavors that stay with you. Noted some hints of earth and herb as well. This wine is dry with a nice background of tannins that gives it a certain pleasant bite to it. I fell like this wine may be a little young but cannot tell for sure. Perhaps decanting it would open up the fruit more. Lots of potential here and you can't go wrong when it is only $14.
Dark fruits in this Super Tuscan style wine were on the forefront for me with touches of berry and cassis. Earth and leather on the nose. Chocolate flavors and some oak integrate nicely with firm tannins that give the wine great structure. I was impressed by this wine when I tasted it and for around $14 in my locale I think that this wine presents a good value.
