Italy, Red Wine, Sangiovese, Toscana IGT, Tuscany

Another stunner. Reminiscent of a very good Rioja, this has the same silky texture and complex palate with interesting dark berry, raspberry and dried herbs. It’s fresh, yet powerful. Really one of the great unique wines of the world in my opinion, and it’s right there with Chateau Simone in style, and it’s unlike any other wine from Italy I have tasted. A curiosity, but an excellent one.

I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.
