“Made entirely from Sangiovese, this juicy wine opens with red cherry and white pepper aromas that carry over to the easygoing palate. They’re joined by raspberry notes and fresh acidity, smooth tannins providing the framework.”
“The 2010 Sangiovese Toscano Locorosso bursts from the glass with extroverted dark fruit. Rich and powerful throughout, the Locorosso impresses for its fabulous balance and sheer appeal. Mint, violets and sweet, dark plums linger on the finish.”
Pratesi's 2007 Locorosso - 100% Sangiovese from Carmignano - must certainly be one of the very finest values in Tuscan red. It is a beautiful, fruit-driven Sangiovese that boasts remarkable harmony and polish, not to mention that it is simply delicious juice!
The 2006 Locorosso is 100% Sangiovese from Carmignano that spends four months in French oak barrels. This pretty, aromatic wine offers lovely clarity and freshness in its perfumed black cherries. I can't remember the last time I tasted a wine from Tuscany that delivered this much pleasure for the money. This is a screaming value.
