It's only wine but I like it

75% Sangiovese, the balance Canaiolo and Merlot. The sangiovese really shines through in this wine, with its red cherry fruit, touches of mushroom and dried fruit, all backed up by firm but unobtrusive tannin. Nicely balanced with very discreet use of wood. This is lovely to drink now but I suspect that it will become even more attractive (as many fine Tuscan reds do) with another couple of years of bottle age. Price is now $16.60 making this an outstanding value.
