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.
Deep ruby red with reflections from crimson to garnet. The bouquet of light vanilla is accompanied by spices and tobacco leaf flavors.
The taste is initially pleasantly sour, then wide and palatable. It has an amazing sapidity. Game, grilled red meat and mature cheeses will pair nicely.
"Fascinating aromas of strawberry tart, dried fruits and tobacco box. Full body, with tobacco and berry character. Flavorful finish. I like the sweet, silky texture. This is racy and very refined. Traditional in style. Needs three to four years of bottle age."
"The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino is a wonderfully plush, warm Brunello loaded with radiant fruit. Flowers, licorice and leather develop in the glass, adding dimension to this opulent, expressive wine. The sheer depth of the fruit and the open, sweet bouquet completely cover the tannins, making this one of the most approachable wines of the vintage. This remains a rich, full-bodied Brunello capable of delivering plenty of enjoyment now and over the next handful of years at a minimum. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2024. Rating: 93+
The Wine Advocate
"Austere and sophisticated with penetrating layers of Indian spice, dark fruit and cured meat, Mastojanni delivers the kind of Brunello you’ll want to pair with the best cuts of lamb or beef. This is an elegant and linear wine and the dark fruit element adds softness to the overall texture. "
"Bright medium red. High-pitched nose combines black raspberry, cocoa, spices and menthol. Dense and thick but not a bit heavy--in fact tightly coiled today--with lovely energy and lift to the concentrated fruit, spice and floral flavors. Plenty of stuffing here: the tannins virtually melt into the fruit. Conveys enticing sweetness without being overripe. A saline impression of extract and strong underlying minerality contribute to this wine's taut impression.92(+?)"

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
