Sangioveto. Badia a Coltibuono Tuscany 1997

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Quite pale and delicate rubino color. This opened with a very earthy, fumy nose that showed some raw wood, sweet vanillin, meat and roast herbs, in the mouth it showed an elegant side if a touch chunky with a adequate structure that turned a bit aggressive in the mouth with a bitter/sweet character that played off the earthy core of fruit, very dry in the mouth with a short, rusty finish featuring astringent sour cherry pit fruit. With dinner this showed a bit better featuring a limestony, salty note on the nose and offering up a round core of fruit that had those aggressive tannins popping out like the points on a sprocket. This has good weight in the mouth with a slight chewiness to the earth, sweet baked fruit notes but screams out for food. 2008-2016

Beautiful brick hues, thin, bouquets of dried cherries, cassis. Acids well rounded, dried red fruits, with minerals of red soil which leaves a lingering finish. Paring with a lamb shank and juniper berries.
