Gini Toscana 2000 wine review by (PB)

On a stop over to Boston on the way to LA (NW) served up this Tuscan red.
Garnet hue is showing a touch of age at the rim and yields sweet fruit bouquet with earthy tones and taffy. (That's right I said taffy--or caramel if you prefer!)

The palate is medium to full bodied with good acidity with flavors trying to break out. It should open with a few minutes.

A little rustic with mushroom and fruit in a decent balance and finish that is okay. This wine is a blend of Sangiovese and Merlot. Reference price is $30. This was served by (NW) after the Ricasole Formulae (see previous post) which has a reference price about a third of this wine. I liked the Formulae better! To each his own. Raise a glass.
