Tenuta Sassoregale Maremma Toscana Sangiovese DOC 2014, Italy 

My Rating 80 Points.   

Price $15. 

 

Bright ruby in color with a wide reddish rim and medium intensity.

Sour nose of raspberries, cherries, blueberries, vanilla, wood, eucalyptus, licorice, pencil lead, earth, forest floor, dirt, chocolates and peppercorn.

Medium-bodied with medium plus acidity and long legs.

On the palate, cherries, red currants, raspberries, pomegranates, wood, mint, licorice, spices, vegetables and peppercorn.

Nice length on the finish with extremely soft tannins and tart cherries.

This Tuscan red, is unbalanced, but complex with a nice mouthfeel.

Not my style, as it is too tart to for my taste.
A good food wine, but not one to sip on by the porch.

Aged for 6 months in Oak barrels.

13.5% alcohol by volume.
