- Genius Loci Sangiovese 2005 Product #27478 (In Stock)
Dave McIntyre recommends this elegant, mature Sangiovese, and so do we!
"This is very Old World in style: earthy, with sour cherry and cocoa notes typical of a sangiovese that picks up balsamic notes from aging in large casks. It reminds me of a Brunello, at a fraction of the price, and shows how well a “simple” Tuscan sangiovese can age. We don’t have to worry about cellaring it; that’s already been done for us. Alcohol content: 13 percent." <b>**1/2 The Washington Post</b>
"The 2005 Sangiovese Genius Loci is remarkably elegant and polished; qualities that were hard to come by in this challenging vintage. The plush, dark red fruit coats the palate all the way through to the long, refined finish. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2015." Wine Advocate 90 points
