Tremendous Tuscan

Look out Piemonte . . . this sangiovese might convert diehard nebbiolo fans. Quality, longevity, and fair pricing makes this an exceptional gift or a special treat for yourself. The Guinea Pig club will bring this one back for a future menu. . . the highest honor that can be awarded!
Ok, I'll go with the flow...

Rich, ripe, velvety and full-bodied Sangiovese. Aromas of cassis and toasty oak on the nose are followed up and accompanied by cocoa, black cherry and a hint of tobacco on the long lasting finish. This is truly a sexy wine which does live up to the hype. A wine to be poured for special occasions and with time and room to breathe.

Intense color, promounce nose with dark fruit and smoky finish, the wine has great balance and is very good right now. Beautiful introduction to great italian wine from Tuscany.
