Podere La Cappella Corbezzolo 1998

From Italy comes this IGT organic Sangiovese, aged one year in oak and one year in bottle. It's an assault on the senses. First, the pronounced aroma of animal, then varnish, prune and oak, followed on the mouth by ripe cherries, a bit of violets and a good long rustic finish. This wine has body, texture and complexity...it's expensive but for special occasions, a treat for sure.
