Riecine La Gioia IGT 2006, Tuscany, Italy (750ml)
|| Grapes:||99% Sangiovese, 1% Merlot
|| Type:||Dry Red|
| Sangiovese with a drop of Merlot, the 2006 version is stunning; the wine reminding me of great encounters I've had with top vintages of Flaccianello or Cepparello. Powerfully made and structured for the long haul, this young wine struts out of the glass with brash, brazen black fruit, plums, raspberry and spice, leather and tobacco. Amazingly delicious!
