Enofylz came to visit and chose the 2009 Sangiovese as Wine of the Week. With our thanks…here’s an excerpt of the review, with more at the link below:
The fruit for this wine is primarily from the Castello di Amorosa estate. In addition to Sangiovese, this wine also includes a bit of Merlot. Carmine color with cherry, mushroom. and dried rose petal aromas. On the palate, it’s medium-bodied, and fresh with a smooth texture and sour cherry, strawberry, vanilla flavors with a savory undertone and a lengthy finish.
Rating: A- (90pts): I really enjoyed this wine. It has a nice balance of fruit, oak and earthiness.
Pair with: I enjoyed this wine with lasagna (if it grows together, it goes together after all;-), but don’t limit your pairings to pizza and red-sauced pasta. Pair with caprese salad with fresh basil, Italian bread soup, wild mushroom risotto, rustic paella, grilled fare, and a variety of cheeses. For example consider pairing with mild blue-veined cheeses like Gorgonzola or Cambozola.
