Palmoletino, Fondo di Pio Montecucco Riserva Sangiovese 2015, Tuscany, Italy
Tasting Note: This wine is an example of why you should enjoy more aged sangiovese which mellows out over time and gets more comfortable in its own skin.
Medium-to-deep-intensity ruby in color with some garnet around the edges, this wine has a medium-intensity nose of red cherry, black tea, hints of vanilla baking spice and leather.
On the palate the dry, medium-plus-bodied sangiovese has medium-plus-intensity flavors suggested on the nose supported by medium acidity and completing with a long finish.
Filled with complexity, suppleness and harmony.
