I was given a bottle of this Tuscan red, but the ‘bottle’ was 1.5 litres, or in other words a magnum. It’s a deep red wine made with a blend of different grapes, sangiovese up to 70 percent, and cabernet and other varieties up to 30 percent. The grapes are fermented separately since they ripen at different times, and are blended toward the end of fermentation, which is then done in small wooden casks.
It’s a very fruity wine with tones of cherry and spice, but at 13 percent is not as strong as some of the New World reds. It’s quite mellow and has a nice bouquet to it, too.
