Vintages Wine Panel: Volpaia is one of Tuscany’s most recognized and respected producers. Their Citto is a blend of Sangiovese with a small amount of Cabernet Sauvignon to add depth to the flavours. The wine is unoaked, thus putting the fresh fruit aromas and flavours front and centre. Look for cherry, blackberry, cassis and a hint of underbrush on the nose. Even without the oak, it has exceptional structure that will even reward 2-4 years in a cellar. My note: Good grip in this wonderfully delicious full-bodied red. Aromas of tangy sun-dried tomatoes, cedar-spice, and red berries. Decant for 1 hour.

Sangiovese Cabernet Sauvignon food pairings: meat-based pasta dishes,.
