Bootleg Grande Tuscan 2003
from Tuscany, Italy
An appealing marriage of old vine Sangiovese, Merlot and Ancellota. Sangiovese adds broad-faced, generous, marasca cherry while the Merlot is supple and round. The extremely rare, dark, intense Ancellota brings intense earthiness and terroir. Floral and opulent with cashmere tannins, hints of vanilla extract and red fruit reduction on the finish.
Blend: 60% Sangiovese, 35% Merlot , 5% Ancellotta
Stands alone or is perfect with steak Florentine, caprese, wild boar,
duck or spicy fusion cuisines such as Thai/French.

For the price it was quite a good wine. Not the best I have ever had, but definitely well worth the price. I won’t go into tasting notes because everyone’s pallet is a little different, but the wine is a gorges red and exhibits qualities of much more costly wines from the same region.

I admit I bought this wine because I liked the packaging so much. I notice stuff like that because I am a Graphic Designer. Thankfully, this was one of the best Italian wines I have ever tasted. I plan on buying it again and again.

A dry but not bitter wine that is similar to Australian cabernets but milder than those I've tried. I will definitely add this wine to my new order.
