Terre di Fiori Acanto IGT Maremma Toscana 2008
Here is a SuperTuscan blend of 85% Sangiovese with 15% Cabernet Sauvignon that is fermented in steel tanks for 15 days then barrel aged for 6-8 months in French oak, and finally in bottle for 3-6 months.
Deep ruby colors with complex aromas of dark underbrush, earth, raisins and prunes, some vegetal hints, black and blue fruits, silky, round and noble, intense on the palate where dusty violets display an attractive elegance but with subtlety... cassis and smoke on the finish. This delicious bargain is $21 SRP.
