Renzo Masi Sangiovese Chianti Rùfina 2006
RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
The nose showed dark chocolate covered cherries, sweet spice and tobacco. On the palate, it was full bodied , yet fresh, balanced and vibrant, holding it's alcohol effortlessly with flavors of rips cherry and spice. The finish was pleasant, but seemed to fade quickly off the palate. In the end, it's a highly enjoyable bottle of Amarone.
Wine has nothing extreme, full in most ways that matter. Alluring rich nose of creamy red fruit and tart notes. In the mouth has balanced and well-integrated, clean, deep sour ripe fruit (black cherry, elderberry, perhaps blackberry) with a slightly buttery and metal edge with spices. Finish fades from sour to sweet fruit with a hint of wood. Good QPR. Dryish. Body medium plus, acid medium plus, tannin medium.
Big and a tad funky. Concentrated black fruit. Big and bold. - WS Grand Tour 2011
It wasn't bad. It was a smooth, pleasant Italian wine, but nothing special imo. It has nice balance, but not the complexity of other 'ripasso' style wines that I like much better.
Light, but intense red fruit. Simple and smooth. Excellent picnic wine.
