Big, Big Red follows two more Manchester mornings at 39 degrees; so, while our Spring-time remains one of the coldest, I'm going for the hottest, spiciest, and boldest reds.
Il Molino di Grace Il Margone Gran Selezione 2010 Chianti Classico DOCG, (100% Sangiovese) $36.54-$42.99, 93 points, poured core black grading bright red toward the broad clear wine ring.
Herbaceous aroma was accented with mint, lavender, rose, black cherry, and oak.
Near full-bodied, bright acidity, grainy medium tannins, and flavors reflective of the aromas with other black fruit-rich notes which improved as the wine breathed.
Finished long on caramel, blackberry cordial, and warm spices with a 13.5% alcohol.
Paired perfectly with my spaghetti and meatballs.
