Torrebruna Sangiovese di Toscana 2012

I hope my wine blogging friends didn’t think I’d forgotten my desire and intention to experience and learn more about this venerable wine varietal!  Not by a long shot.  Oh, there may have been a hiatus, but the break has only whetted my thirst for more.  I picked this bottle up at a boutique wine shop not too far down the road.

Winemaker: Torrebruna
Wine: Sangiovese
Vintage: 2012
Appellation: Toscana, Italy IGT
Price: $11.99

Notes:  Scents wafting from this dark garnet glass of wine included violets, berries, and dry earth.  It was medium-bodied with good acidity and medium tannins.  A dry Sangiovese at 14% alcohol, it brought flavors of red plum, violets, dried green herbs, and a hint of carob to the tongue.  In addition, the finish was quite tart.  I found it an interesting drink.  No doubt it’d be a nice accompaniment for a variety of meat dishes.
