Rocca delle Macie 'Campomaccione' 2012 Morellino di Scansano (DOCG), $7.99-$15.99, 88 points, poured a bright ruby grading orange/red at the thin clear wine ring and heavy legged glass bowl.
Smells of mulberry, black cherry jam, mushrooms, cocoa, and red licorice were all okay.
Medium-bodied with good acidity and a firm underlayment of tannin showed a red cherry flavor profile.
Finished long with warm red pepper, a hint of bay-leaf, and an accommodating 13% alcohol.
At this price, this Morellino di Scansano would be an excellent red table-wine for everyday service (buy it by the case).
Paired perfectly with my chicken cacciatore.
