Luna Napa Valley 2007 Sangiovese, $22.89, 85 points, presents a rather Tannat black color trending a copper-red toward the clear rim.
The nose is quietly musty with earth, and hints of an old-grey-mare (maybe a bit brett-y), a nose to sneeze-at!
This is a full-bodied Sangiovese, acidic, very dry, and more tannic than the previous American Sangiovese wines tasted.
Plum fruit, caramel flavors are plentiful, and the nose is the remainder of the palate.
Finishes short and disappointingly bland, but the possibility that this wine has been compromised leaves me questioning just how to judge the 2007 Luna Sangiovese.
I bought this wine at Klem's Mobil in Windham.
