Castello di Amorosa Napa Valley Sangiovese 2017, California



Ruby in color with a wide reddish/ brick rim.

On the nose blueberries, currants, plums, tart cherries, light cedar, vanilla, licorice, light earth, spices, chocolates, tobacco leaf and black pepper.

Medium plus in body with medium-plus acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate with cherries, raspberries, plums, vanilla, licorice, cedar, leather, earth, tobacco leaf, spices, graphite, herbs and black pepper.

Medium plus on the finish with fine grained tannins and tangy raspberries.

This is a nice wine from Napa Valley. Tangy, spicy and interesting with a nice mouthfeel.

Still young, but already drinking nicely. Feels like an Italian red with a new world twist.

Easy drinking and needs time to open up a property. I gave it 90 minutes.

Good by itself or with food. I paired it with a Brie cheese. Will pair nicely with pizza.

A blend of 85% Sangiovese and 15% Merlot. Aged for 18 months in French Oak barrels (35% new).

14.7% alcohol by volume.

90 points.

$36.
