Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.
Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.
Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.
Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.
Dense, concentrated wild cherry fruit leads into aromatic impressions of violet, spice, walnut and tea in this full-bodied, single-vineyard wine of firm yet sweetly ripe tannic presence and firm, slightly austere acidic underpinning. The wine's underlying structure promises potential for extended aging.
"This impressive vineyard designate Brunello delivers buoyant
tones of cherry cola, mesquite and balsam notes. There’s
a direct and immediate nature to the aromas, followed by
bright acidity and silky tannins that leave a lasting impression.
This is a very beautiful wine that would pair with meats
and oven-roasted pasta dishes."
"Emerges from the glass with a soft,
expansive core of fruit, caressing the
palate with dark red fruit, sweet spices
and flowers. The wine's inner perfume
becomes more expressive with air,
yet this too looks to be a Brunello best
suited to mid-term drinking. In 2005 the
Manachiara isn't quite the powerhouse it
is in most vintages, but it compensates for
that with its beautiful sense of harmony."
The Wine Advocate
"Bright red with a hint of brick. Drop-dead
gorgeous nose offers a smorgasbord of
pristine, perfumed sangiovese aromas:
redcurrant, red cherry, licorice, black
tea leaf and minerals. Then quite juicy
in the mouth, with redcurrant, tobacco
and herb flavors nicely firmed by sound
acidity. Finishes with fairly sweet, fine
tannins and very good length. A classic
Manachiara and a very accurate rendition
of the 2005 style of Brunello: perfumed
rather than powerful."

Sangiovese (SAHN-gee-oh-VAY-zee) Blood of Jove (literally translated) The principal grape of Chianti - in fact, the principle grape of all of Tuscany - has had its ups and downs. 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
