Rubizzo 2009 Sangiovese de Toscana

December Vino 001

Sangiovese is a grape that shines in Tuscan wines whether at the top end in price or very affordable, such as this offering from Rubizzo.

Green Dragon picked up this bottle for $10 at Corks as she was looking for a tasty, yet affordable casual sipper. She scored big in terms of flavor.

This Sangio has very smooth tannins with a mélange of ripe dark cherries. This wine has about 5% Merlot to further add to the silky texture. There is a slight nuance of leather and earth.

The Rubizzo is food friendly with pizza, pasta or veal. It is also a great wine for everyday use but is a crowd pleaser that will work for entertaining as well.
