Literally every time I have a bottle of Sangiovese with dinner, I can’t help but make attempts to put on an Italian accent. “Sangio – VAY – see” with emphasis on the ‘VAY’ part with a few hand and arm motions thrown in. It sounds pretty lame I know, and doesn’t seem the same in the written word, but it’s a bit of fun and that’s part of the idea about wine. Let me tell you about this “Sangio – VAY – see”!
Rich on the nose with blue fruits and cherries with a nice herbal note to it. The palate is concentrated yet medium bodied with fresh and juicy red fruits, blueberries, dark cherries and a hint of spice. Those herbs I smelt earlier appear again, while the oak is just poking through in support of the delicate tannins and, to top it all off, it has very good length. An excellent example of the variety of which we couldn’t help but finish the bottle over dinner. Bellisimo!!
