Tenuta Sassoregale DOC 2013 Sangiovese Maremma Toscana

Tenuta Sassoregale DOC 2013 Sangiovese Maremma Toscana, $13.99-$16.99, 87 points, poured a deep maroon trending a dark pomegranate red toward the transparent wine ring at the glass edge.
Aromas were black currant, earthy, and herbal.
Medium-plus body carried good acidity, a supportive underlayment of tannin, and a fair balance of flavors reflective of the aromas with a bit of blackberry and coffee to boot.
Finished long, but a bit astringent, on licorice, mint, pepper, leather, and a well integrated 13.5% alcohol.
Great table wine for $14.

Paired perfectly with Debbie's meatloaf.
