Italy — Tuscany • $24.95 • 89/100

This Sangiovese blend, with 5% Canaiolo, hails from Radda in the Province of Siena. It is ruby-red, showing some garnet on the rim. Aromas of spice and cedary resin, then light herbal and savoury notes, lead into a core of blackberries and black cherries. Crisp acidity and fine, linear tannins frame the palate, as the ripe fruit comes to the fore, and the savoury, earthy and wood-related notes recede into the background. Approachable now, it can cellar for at least three to five years. Good value. • Tasted 2017-02-18 • LCBO id#315150 • Find it at your nearest LCBOIMPRESE INC. (Agent)
