Beautiful Rosso di Montalcino. Rosemary, thyme, tarragon, tomato, sour cherry, and baked clay.

Continuing to investigate the Sangiovese environs. Venturing into montalcino. But also, what else do you drink with lasagna bolognese?

Wise, sage, Sangiovese. Old, with flashes of its youthful vibrant self. It has a brick crimson rim and soft minerals, dried fruit, leather, and cedar. Black cherries, fresh strawberries, and sweet raisin.
