Sangiovese, Colorino, Merlot, & Cabernet Sauvignon
Of all the words to describe a legitimately awesome Super Tuscan, “affordability” & “ridiculous bargain” are not generally the first words that come to mind. But such is the case with Piccini's interesting take on a standard Tuscan red blend of Sangiovese, Colorino, Merlot, & Cabernet Sauvignon. This wine is made through “an old technique that was lost in time called Governo All'Uso Toscano”, wherein dried grapes are added back to to the wine to create a second fermentation. Beyond this interesting novelty, this ruby red wine is marked by notes of ripe fruit especially red cherries & an elegant floral touch of violet. It is a generous wine, full-bodied, & super smooth. An excellent food wine, especially if paired with succulent starters, assorted cheeses, grilled meats, & tasty soups.
