"Lively bright red. Racy aromas of blueberry, red cherry, minerals and mint on the rich, complex nose. Rich, weighty and chewy in the mouth, showing precise flavors of red and dark berries and minerals complicated by hints of underbrush. Finishes smooth and extremely persistent, with lingering mineral nuances. This is a simply superb sangiovese, and I was surprised by its huge, almost brooding nature, given that the vintage is not known for wines in the same blockbuster mold as 1990 or 2001.

The resulting wines do not have any of the superripe warm-weather personality of vintages such as 1990 or 1997. 94+ Poits"

For a stint in the 70s and 80s, wines labeled Chianti contained cheap red wine packaged in a straw casked bottle, most popular for the candle holder it would become. But no more. Sangiovese re...Read More About Sangiovese
