- Fiore Rosso Toscana IGT 2012 Product #28254 (In Stock)
Alessandro Fiore got started in the wine business promoting the wines of his father’s estates - Poggio Scalette in Chianti and Castelluccio le More in Emilia Romagna – in Europe and the USA. So, when Alessandro decided to strike out on his own, it was natural that he turned to Vittorio Fiore for advice and winemaking help. In 30+ years of consulting across Tuscany, Vittorio had identified a handful of small estates with exceptional quality fruit and wine, but limited marketing resources or skills. With Vittorio finding and making the wines and Alessandro leading on marketing, Fiore Wine Collection was born.
There are several outstanding wines in this line-up, but tasting the Fiore Rosso IGT stopped us cold. This “Super-Tuscan” is a blend of 70% Sangiovese and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, all grown near the storied towers of Tuscany’s walled city of San Gimignano. Fermented cool and aged all in tank, the wine opens with generous aromas of black cherry, red- and blackcurrant, and a touch of sweet spice. In the mouth, it’s flat out exciting, with luscious dark berry and cherry fruit at the core of a lushly textured, velvety, mouthful of wine. The richness and fruit carry on through the rich, plush, finish where velvet-clad tannins and tangy cherry acids provide support, keep the flavors fresh, and pull you back for another sip. You can certainly drink this all by itself, but you’ll love it even more with salami, grilled red and white meats, and even pizza! A super value Super Tuscan steal!
