Vigne A Porrona "Toscana Rosso" 2011 wine review by (PB)
Medium garnet hue with aromas of forest floor, bright cherry, menthol and cigar box.
Palate--True Tuscan, rustic, flavors of sturdy Sangiovese with steally notes and a touch of dark berry. Finishes with graphite.
This is a blend of Sangiovese, the signature grape of Tuscany and some Syrah. I paid $11 for it and it is a great buy. A decent wine with a clear sense of place so raise a glass!
