Fattoria Capannacce Rosso della MaremmaToscana 2005 wine review by (PB)

This inexpensive Italian red is a "Super Tuscan" meaning it is a blend of Syrah, Grenache, and Carnaiolo, with the classic Chianti grape of Sangiovese. There are lovely big aromas of black cherry and ripe dark berry fruit with some ripe plum.

Palate--Juicy, with a tannic back bone, tight fruit, chewy, with quick finish and smokey ending.

But--breathe this an hour or more and it is a different wine! It opens nicely and all the imbalance of tannins and tight fruit morphs into an easy drinking, Tuscan which was great with our Lou Malnati's Pizza from Chicago! At $12 raise a glass!
