2009 Sangiovese is

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.
