2010 Poggiotondo Rosso Toscano
Amore! Somebody please tell me why I don't drink more Italian wines. Affordable, delicious quality wines from regions rich in history and beautiful settings. This particular wine I purchased for under $25 and is a blend of 40% Sangiovese, 30% Merlot, and 30% Syrah.
The nose is full of rich dark cherry aromas with soft plum notes and and a kiss of spice. Red berry notes as you continue to swirl. Rich and ellegant.
The mouth is wonderful with the red fruit and soft tannins on this juicy wine. Ripe cherry and juicy plum with a faint hint of spice on the finish. Such an easy drinker! I paired with a nice big plate of spaghetti and it was an excellent pairing.
