Vasco Sassetti IL Ginepro Rosso Toscana Sangiovese 2015 IGT, Italy 

My Rating 83 Points.   

Price $10. 
Dark purple in color with a light purplish rim.

Fruity on the nose with sweet cherries, strawberries, blueberries, oak, vanilla, metals, dirt, licorice, smoke and peppercorn.

Medium to full bodied with medium plus acidity and nice legs.

Dry on the palate with blueberries, plums, raspberries, oak, vanilla, licorice, earth, peppercorn and spices.

Long finish with firm tannins and peppercorn.

A Nice Sangiovese with a nice mouthfeel and good complexity.
A little light and unbalanced, but it is still very young. Drinkable now by itself, or with food. Will be better in a couple of years, though.

13.5% alcohol by volume.
