Fattoria Castellina ‘Impogeo’ Toscana Rosso IGT 2009

Sangiovese from Italy - Tuscany
Review Date : 17-Aug-2012
A 110 ha farm situated between Florence and Vinci, the vineyard area 10 ha. Sangiovese, Cabernet Franc and Syrah fermented to 13.0% alc., the wine aged 12 months in French oak. Deep, dark ruby-red colour with garnet hues, lighter on rim. Elegantly concentrated aromas of dark cherries intermingle with plums, earth and complexing game notes on bouquet. Medium-full bodied, poised and piquant bitter cherry fruit flavours are expressed with brightness, juiciness and vitality, and good acid balance. Some game and animal brettanomyces elements emerge, and are interwoven with savoury earthiness, adding another layer of character. The palate is well-proportioned and supported by fine-grained, tight and firm tannins which lead to a dry, grainy finish. A moderately full-bodied Tuscan red with classic bitter-cherry Sangiovese fruit and fine, dry grip, serve with casseroles and game meats over the next 4-6 years. Certified organic. 17.5/20 Aug 2012 RRP $23.50
