2010 Benedetto Reserve
A proud member of the Vitagliano family of wines, this carefully selected reserve blend is loaded with dark brooding fruit, smoke & roasted game. Dark violets show up mid-palate along with currants & dried figs & leather. Hints of tobacco & leather keep the long finish even longer. Sangiovese is extremely food-friendly with acidic foods that can otherwise be difficult like with dishes containing tomatoes of acidic red sauces. White beans, mushrooms, and grilled meat are also parteners with the Sangiovese, this lighter style Sangiovese has proven to pair well with fish, especially griled or roasted.
