Italy — Tuscany • $19.95 • WD Score 88/100

This is a Sangiovese blend from Maremma, with Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Montepulciano d’Abruzzo. The wine is deep, dark red in colour, with very ripe blackberry, black cherry and black currant fruit, some vanilla and wood spice, a floral lift, and an undertone of forest floor. There is just a touch of heat, with slightly astringent tannins but lots of juicy fruit. Overall very pleasant and appealing — I’m thinking that this will warm you up nicely if you are cooking steaks on the barbecue this winter. • Tasted 2018-02-03 • LCBO id#535336 • Find it at your nearest LCBOLE SOMMELIER INC.
