“Pratesi's 2015 Sangiovese Locorosso is dark, powerful and super-expressive, especially for an entry-level offering. Black cherry, plum, menthol, licorice and cloves all hit the palate. The opulent style of the year comes through loud and clear. This is an impressive showing.”
Editors' Choice - Thick extraction and enduring notes of sweet spice set the tone of this sophisticated Sangiovese. The wine appears older than it is but does an excellent job of delivering cinnamon and over-ripe black fruit. It closes with firm tannins and bright cherry flavors.
The 1998 Rosso Toscano Lo Locco (100% Sangiovese) possesses a dense ruby color in addition to an explosive nose of roasted espresso beans, chocolate, cherry jam, and spice. In the mouth, it is rich, chewy, sexy, and opulently-textured. It is a hedonistic mouthful of juicy red selling for a song.
