2015 Rosso di Fiore, Marcheschi Vineyard, Alexander Valley
OMG. Rosso di freaking awesome! Even though this blend is 2/3 Zinfandel, it has a truly authentic Italian Sangiovese aroma. The Sangiovese is tenacious and fights its way to be the star of the show…and the Zinfandel seems to be perfectly fine with that.This wine has a lovely tannin structure and a juicy mouthfeel. Aromas of tart black cherry, red plum, fig, thyme, tomato and leather followed by flavors of minerality, tobacco, strawberry, thyme, black truffle and dried rose petal.
