This is a very tasty and tangy Sangiovese based red from Tuscany. Showing nice complexity with a nice mouthfeel. Spicy, powerful and tangy.
Still young and would be better in 3 to 5 years. A good quality wine with good potential. Would continue to age nicely in the next 10 years.
Needs time to open up. I gave it 90 minutes, but I don’t think it was enough. Still a little hot, which will dissipate with time.
A good food wine that I paired with cheeses and olives. Will pair nicely with pizza.
A blend of 90% Sangiovese and 10% Merlot.
14% alcohol by volume.
