De Vinosalvo - 'Levitas' Maremma Toscana DOC Sangiovese 2014
by Cheese Meets Wine
A blend of mostly Sangiovese with a small amount of Shiraz from our Porrona vineyard, and testimony to our conviction that these two varieties fit together and complement each other brilliantly. The Sangiovese provides the savoury base and a fresh acidity with a complex of red fruit aromas - cherry, raspberry and a hint of marasca – along with the crystalline ruby-red colour. The Shiraz adds herbal notes of garrigue
, lends weight and length, and helps to round out the palate with its spiciness and firm tea-like tannins. A worthy match for the festive turkey; also goes well with full-flavoured pasta and rice dishes.
