A very enjoyable “Toscana” that is young now but can be enjoyed if there is food to pair with it. Aromatically, it came across as modern with ripe black cherry, currant, and tobacco. On the palate, good acidity with a streak of tart cherry down the middle, complemented by iron, tar and rose petal. Pop with a few slices of pizza and enjoy the ride.

Enjoyed over 4 days and just got better each day. This is what you’d drink every day in Tuscany. SS

I was skeptical about organic wines measuring up to the classics. Here’s your contender!

Number 3 of 5 at the Salcheto winery. Their base level VNdM from estate vineyards. 100% Sangiovese (locally referred to as Prugnolo Gentile). Excellent meaty presentation of the classic. Forward high-toned cherry, rhubarb, spices, and violets. Balance is superb in such a value priced wine.
