Accessible medium-bodied dry red wine from 50% Sangiovese with Merlot, Alicante, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. Maremma is the most recent Tuscan denomination and has been extremely well received. Purple red colour with aromas and tastes of red berries, plums, blueberries, cherries and light sweet spices. Supple and round , with good balance and a long aftertaste.
Think Italian: pasta with a meat or tomato sauce and even meatloaf. Baked pasta dishes such as lasagne, pizza or even grilled cheese sandwiches . Very versatile, excellent through a whole meal, if you like red for aperitif, then this is your companion!
