2005 Altamura Sangiovese

Community Tasting Note


Saturday, February 2, 2013 - I was a bit worried about this wine reading the tasting notes over the last 6 months so I decided to move it up in the queue for the next Italian dinner. Nothing to worry about after all, thankfully. Color is still fairly dark for a Sangiovese and not seeing the brick color around the rim yet. Aroma is stewed fruit and dark plum with sweet cherry and mild cedar notes. The attack is dominated by sweet cherry which transitions to cigar ending in prominent tobacco and tar. Finish is slightly dry by not distracting. Nice wine with the meal.
