Rocca di Montemassi le Focaie Maremma Toscana IGT 2007
Cherry and dried herbs on the nose with a hint of wet earth note. The 2007 Le Focaie finishes with moderate tannins and light vanilla overlaying tart notes. This is a fairly "old world" style of Sangiovese from Maremma (coastal Tuscany). It has that steely core and just as much herbs as fruit. For food pairings, think pizza, spaghetti, and other Italian comfort foods.
I loved this wine, but it will appeal most to traditionalists. Cherry and chalk aromas and flavors, turning a bit sour on the finish. I liked its restraint and that it wasn't trying too hard--it's sangiovese, and sometimes that's just what you want!
