Mursiglia Rouge 2017 $49.99
100% Niellucciu, the Coriscan name for Sangiovese, planted to the same vineyard as the Blanc. Fermented with whole bunches in stainless steel, then transferred to concrete tanks for 30 month's aging before being bottled un-fined and unfiltered.
A seductive nose of cherry, blackberry, sandalwood, violets, rosemary and a touch of olive tapenade. The broad palate is filled with rich, ripe fruit, rocky mid-palate minerality, elegant violet floral notes, all buttressed by fine grained tannins and a jolt of acidity. A French wine with an Italian accent, completely enthralling.
