Lungarotti - Rubesco Vigno Monticchio Riserva 2007
Christmas Eve. Rubesco Vigna Monticchio Riserva 2008 / 30% Canaiolo Nero , 70% Sangiovese. This wine needs some time to come alive but after half an hour this one is alive and kicking. In the glass red ruby red. Intense, with purple hues. In the nose elegant and complex aromas of cherries and violets and refined woody notes, cocoa, caffee, spicy aftertaste pepper and cloves. On the palate warm and compact in structure, complex fruit and a little balsamic; alive and pleasantly refreshing acidity, tannin intriguing, long finish and the closure spicy.
