Tua Rita Rosso Dei Notri 2009 IGT Toscana, Red Wine with 60% Sangiovese, 15% Merlot, 15% Syrah, and 10% Petit Verdot.
Score: 92 points
With a bouquet of Black currant, cinnamon, "after the thunderstorm freshness", and dried herbs which carries onto the palate.
Good acidity and soft tannin on a medium-plus body, smooth with red-wine bourbon (14% alcohol) and a finish reminiscent of Sambuca are the hallmarks of this wine; looking for globs of fruit? You won't find them here, though some Damson plum is present.
If you like this style of wine, then I highly recommend this dry red wine with red meat cuisine, or traditional Italian pasta dishes.
As a stand alone sipper? Yes!
