Case of 12

Item #53926
Size: 750ml
Type: Red Wine
Varietal: Sangiovese
Country: Italy
Region: Tuscany

"This wine is ruby red in color, with rich dark red nuances and a distinctly fruity bouquet. Its supple cherry aromas are followed by hints of vanilla and cinnamon. It is fullbodied and balanced, with fine-grained tannins. More complex and structured than regular Chianti, this Riserva has an unmistakable Tuscan personality and is best with meat-based dishes, barbecued pork or veal, and game."

2011 Caparzo Rosso di Montalcino

"Perfumed red cherry, raspberry, violet and flint on the knockout nose. Fresh and juicy, but with sneaky density to the ripe raspberry and cherry pie flavors. Finishes with building minerality, smooth tannins and a whiplash of red fruit."

2012 Il Poggione Rosso di Montalcino

"The 2012 Rosso di Montalcino could almost be mistaken for a Riserva given the amazing depth and impenetrable darkness it shows in the glass. The wine is made from the estate’s youngest and lowest vines that have definitely taken on the brunt of the 2009 summer heat. The mouthfeel is supple and rich and somewhat one-dimensional. At this young stage, the bouquet shows awkward whiffs of toasted coconut and popcorn that prevented me from scoring it higher."
