Number 16 on the Wine.com 100 of 2007!
"The outstanding 2005 Vitiano Sangiovese makes a mockery of many of the over-priced Sangioveses emerging from other areas of the world. A stunning value, it boasts a beautiful bouquet of sweet cherries, strawberries, bay leaf, spice, and blacker fruits. Full-bodied with superb length, good underlying acidity, and a beautiful texture, it spent six months in barrel before being bottled.
It should be drunk within 2-3 years of release. Kudos to Riccardo and Renzo Cotarella for continuing to deliver remarkable wines at these prices."
Not an eye-opener by any means, but it goes very well with my wife's spinach lasagna, or any other pasta dish you might prefer.
