Why the winemaker recommends Tenuta Aquilaia Maremma Toscana DOC Fosso Sanguinaio 2019
Great surprise, a wine absolutely to be tasted by virtue of a very correct blend of Sangiovese / petit / alicante of high quality profile. Formally impeccable interpretation of Tuscan red in which the imprint clearly emerges. A full-bodied and vigorous wine, characterized by firm tannins, moderately expressive.
Characteristics of the Fosso Sanguinaio Tenuta Aquilaia wine
the Sangiovese from the Tuscan Maremma is presented in a blend with Petit Verdot and Alicante, a beautiful ruby color with slight garnet reflections. Aromas of fruits such as wild strawberry, blueberry, cherry stand out, which combine with suggestions of pepper, tobacco, leather and bitter cocoa, and herbaceous and floral notes that recall violet and the Medici herbs typical of the Mediterranean scrub. A wine with structure but which maintains the freshness of a young wine, a tannin that is still a little rough but which holds up well the combination of persistence and drinkability.
Recommended pairings with Maremma Toscana DOC red wine
In combination with stewed beef with cabbage; oven-baked pork ribs; with culurgiones and roasted Sardinian sausage; seared red radicchio; with aged cheeses and red meats, also good on its own.
