Sangiovese Terre degli Osci IGT 2011


Wine Description

Made from 100% Sangiovese grown in the Ramitello and Martarosa vineyards and hand-harvested in October, this wine is aged in stainless steel and large oak barrels for six months to achieve greater smoothness and softness while preserving the supple fruit-forward characteristics of Sangiovese.

Tasting Notes

Bright red in color, aromas of violets and red berries complement undertones of leather and anise.  On the palate, this wine is dry and mellow with smooth tannins that make for a crowd-pleasing, easy-to-drink red wine.

Food Pairing

Pair this wine with hamburgers, Bolognese sauces, lasagna, and even paella valenciana.
