Christmas Red Puglia Sangiovese I.G.T 2011 750ml

Christmas Red Puglia Sangiovese I.G.T

A festive and fruit-rich, full bodied Italian red, created especially for the Yuletide season to complement winter fare. An ideal gift or affectionate token, to be shared with family and friends this Christmas season. The label design harks back to a bygone era and will look at home at any Christmas table.

Sangiovese (san-jo-veh-zeh) is a red Italian wine grape variety whose name derives from the Latin sanguis Jovis, "the blood of Jove". Though it is the grape of most of central Italy from Romagna down to Lazio, Campania and Sicily, outside Italy it is most famous as the main component of the blend Chianti, Carmignano, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano and Morellino di Scansano, although it can also be used to make varietal wines such as Brunello di Montalcino, Rosso di Montalcino or Sangiovese di Romagna, as well as modern "Super Tuscan" wines like Tignanello. Young Sangiovese has fresh fruity flavors of strawberry and a little spiciness, but it readily takes on oaky, even tarry, flavors when aged in barrels. Sangiovese was already well known by the 16th century.

Sangiovese from Puglua? It is a Tuscan wine with a fancy label. And as a Tuscan wine it is quite young.
** two stars, average red, a little sweet, ok table wine

Label is great , wine left a lot to be desired, but a great gift for my non wine drinking friends.

I found the wine very fine in taste, but would have appreciated more body, as most wines from Puglia possess.
