Wow! This one surprised me for a $9 bottle. Kinda lost track of this last bottle and it's been sitting in the cellar for a few years. Despite the fact that this is not a wine designed for aging, it definitely picked up some interest in the years. Earthy, nutty notes, with dark fruit on the palate. Still lively and fruit forward. Great with food, especially acidic dishes like pasta with red sauce and Chicken French.
No decant, faded blueberry and graphite in the bouquet, the palate is dominated by angularity and a long tannic finish, this is an example of a Sangiovese that has passed its peak in terms of its fruit and has passed into a much more earthy stage, interesting to try and enjoyable in its own way.
