Sunday, September 7, 2008 - Deep puple color. Blackberry and other dark fruits on the nose. Very smooth wine with a strong mid-palette and long, clean finish. I don't know what was blended with this sangiovese to keep it from being called a brunello, but it was a superb choice, making this wine more accessible earliy and really rounding out the flavors -- not that I'm against the unique terrior of place when it comes to wine. This wine just works very well. It also shows no sign of falling off. I think this wine has a long life ahead, at least 5-7 years. We enjoyed this a lot with whole wheat pasta with a red pasta sauce featuring ground veal and lamb.
