Rio Real Reserva 2008

Member Review by Kyle Graynor:

I just had to write a review for this wine since it really surprised me. I didn't know what to expect from this wine, but it started off well, with a very interesting purple color. It was very smooth, a tiny bit spicy, with great, not too strong tannins. Overall a little complex but a great solid drink to sip on, with or without food.

Sensi is a wine that’s been produced in Tuscany, Italy since 1895 when founder Pietro Sensi first marketed his family wines. In the early 20th century, his sons, Vittorio and Armido, began selling Chianti unded the Fratelli Sensi label from a horse drawn cart to Florence and neighboring towns. Fratelli Sensi wines were among the first Italian wines to be imported to the states, bringing thoughts of home to the many Italian immigrants who moved there. In the 1970s, another generation of the Sensi family began to expand the ever growing business by purchasing vineyards in other regions such as Emilia Romagna, Liguria, Lombardy and outside Milan. In the 1980s, the fourth generation of the Sensi family took the reigns, further developing their successful business. In 2000, they began producing Testardo, their first Super Tuscan release, which is a blend of Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon. Il Mantello was developed in 2003, a blend of Sangiovese and Syrah. The Sensi brand continues to produce wines with respect for traditions while taking strides in innovation and maintaining a passion for their work.  Read less

Five glasses



Tasting Notes:

Bright cherry fruit with hints of blackberry jam, spicy white pepper and a touch of cinnamon combine in a luscious medium bodied wine. The soft tannins extend out a long finish and make this wine pair well with a variety of foods.
