Gabbiano Alleanza 2001
The deep ruby red Alleanza 2001 is a blend of 50% Sangiovese, 40% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. The nose is filled with aromas of prunes, pepper, nutmeg, and fragrant hints of violet. The palate offers ripe plum and berry flavors that are interwoven with layers of cinnamon, vanilla, tobacco and licorice. The tannins are round and well balanced, while the finish is long and accented with a hint of toasted cocoa. Enjoy with braised meats, roasted game dishes and aged cheeses.
