Podere San Luigi Super Tuscan 1998

On Monday evening, I attended a food and wine tasting organized by Grupo Ristoranti Italiani at Gotham Hall's Ballroom in NYC. There I met John L. Morace owner of Podere San Luigi vineyards located just south of San Gimignano in Tuscany. The wine I sampled was a 1998 SuperTuscan made from 85% Sangiovese and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon.

The aromas were earthy and on the palate were notes of ripe sour cherries and licorice. I found smooth tannins and nice acidity in this very good wine.
