From Maremma, Tuscany, Italy.
This is a blend of Sangiovese, Cabernet and Merlot. It was picked by Canada’s govt monopoly fine wine chain as wine of the month. And given 90 points by James Suckling in the Wine Spectator.
Clean, fresh. Quite berry like, including fresh blackberry levels of acidity – which I found offputting. Needs food. Lacks the depth and concentration of top Italian reds, but not over priced (as so many are).
