Nice sangio for the price. Opens up nicely with some air and pairs great with Italian food.

Drank 1/6/20. Paired with Lasagne.

Typically a good value, solid wine year in and year out. Saw this one at Costco on sale for around $13.

Nose of cherry, earth, and a touch of vanilla and blackberry. Initially quite closed off on the palate, this eventually reveals layers of sweet red cherry, and a bit of tar, backed by tannins that are still quite firm. Long, dry finish dominated by red cherry and tar, with evident, drying tannins. Needs some time.

3/21/7/3/4 +50=88 pts.

Better on Day 3. I would give this a couple of years, or at least an hour to decant. May be 89-90 pt range.

Color of purple with dark ruby, a bit cloudy. Nose of dark ripe cherry, milky sweet vanilla, a bit minty, dried strawberry, spice, a bit oak, a bit plum, leathery, and the nose is plenty. Taste of good mix of tannins and acidity, chewy with nice salty mineral, zesty, cherry, oak, subtle sweetness, and a bit peppery. Aftertaste of some more zest of rind and salty mineral. Good content.

Very unsual for a Sangovise. Plenty of dark fruit. Some wood some leather. Supple tanins. Would be great with Red Pasta and Red Pizza.
