Wine Wednesday Sangiovese

July 13, 2011

Say it with me, sangiovese, it just rolls right off the tongue. It is a traditional Italian red grape grown in central Italy. It is a grape that tends to have a high acidity and light body which can be challenging for winemakers, it needs to be fermented just right to make a great bottle.

 

I had two bottles of a 2009 Celita Sangiovese from the Wall Street Journal Wine Club and I had an evening to curl up on the couch with a big stack of magazines and the perfect glass of wine for the evening.

The Celita had flavors of red and black cherries with a nice smooth finish. It retails for about $11.99 a bottle. Something good for everyday drinking but strong enough to stand up to a good meal.
