- 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

This wine is made in the traditional manner, by aging for 3 years in small chestnut barrels in the eaves of the home of the winemaker. It offers flavors of baking spices, maple syrup, caramel and toffee. It is slightly sweet and is often served with biscotti as a simple dessert. And, with nearly 9 years of aging, it's drinking just perfectly right now!
