2010 Montesalario - Sangiovese Montecucco
Sale Price: $29.95
"Montecucco is an up-and-coming area in the Tuscan Maremma coastal region, closely surrounded by Grosseto to the southwest, Sascano to the south and Montalcino to the north and northeast. This adds up to great Sangiovese country! In fact, most of the Sangiovese grapes planted here are identical to those found in Montalcino, home to the famed Sangiovese Grosso clone. As this area is just being explored and the wines are showing glorious potential, this is a region to seek high quality and value, and one of the better examples to look for is from Montesalario. Montesalario Sangiovese Montecucco DOC is flat-out stunning with a dark garnet hue, rich texture, vibrancy and density. Notes of berry, cherry, plum and strawberry fruits, chocolate, tobacco leaf, lavender, licorice and cedar wood spice show Sangiovese at it’s best. Fresh, detailed, layered and lengthy, it may not a wine to age forever, but it will be a pleasure to enjoy over the next 3-5 years." -Kerry Winslow, SFWTC
