2012 La Vendetta Toscana Sangiovese IGT

imageA Sangiovese with a riper, fuller fruit profile that some might even refer to as somewhat New World. Includes 8% Merlot and 6% Cabernet Sauvignon. Imported by Fourth Wave Wine.

Cherries, charcoal, darker berry fruits, dried herbs and raspy tannin. Some raw meat ‘rusticity’ but it’s not too off putting as an aroma or flavour. The back-palate feels a touch metallic and stripped though, especially after the depth of fruit which precedes it. I’d drink it sooner rather than later. 87
