Piazzano Ventoso Sangiovese 2019

Dark in color with a mild cherry nose with some oaky notes coming through. On the mid palate this wine is a BIG one with lots of dark cherries, tomato notes, firm vibrant acidity and noticeable oak. On the medium length finish the tang from the tomato notes lives on as does some palate coating tannins, dryness and acidity. If you like your wines smooth and elegant, ya this is NOT that, so be careful what you serve this with. I went with a smoked trout and honestly it kinda blew the fish away but was heavenly with the chocolate browning. I would give this an 88 … It’s possible this is a bit young and some aging, or decanting might help. From the LCBO web site, check stock:
