So, I have seen this bottle for quite awhile, and today I made the decision to pick it up today. As some of my goombas know, I do love the Sangiovese grape. For those of you that really don't know, this is the grape that makes Chianti, as well as some other well-known Italian wines or wine styles.
This wine has an interesting taste, as it changes significantly from the first taste to the finish. I taste smoke, if not something roasted, but the fruit aspect would be more strawberry, if you could grill it. It's actually quite interesting, and would go great with spicy meats -- as my friend Elizabeth would say. This would really be great with grilled vegetables, including hot peppers. It might also go great with a nice bruschetta. And talking about bruschetta, there is a wonderful restaurant in Stevens, Pennsylvania called Il Riveria -- okay, I don't know how good the food is -- that makes a great one that has black olives and doesn't cut the tomatoes very small. It is to die for!
The color is a deep and dark pink which demands some attention. The mouth of this wine is middle of the road; not too light and not too heavy.
Try this wine before you can't find it anymore!
