Luigi Cecchi & Figli Bonizio Sangiovese Di Maremma IGT 2005
This dry red Sangiovese from Maremma in southern Tuscany brings an earthiness, a fistful of fertile soil, and a primordial essence of the region to the nose of the wine drinker. There are also hints of leather, black fruits and a palate of ripe cherries with full flavor and a good acidity. Opens nicely to become a really good everyday wine with a Chianti attitude in the $10 range from The Wine Room of Forest Hills. Paired nicely with a panini with portobello mushroom, avocado and melted chimay cheese and a side of cucumber vinaigrette by Rita T.
