Geggianello Toscano Rosso 2001

A "baby Super-Tuscan" if you will: 75% Sangiovese, 25% Ciliegiolo & Malvasia Nera with one year spent in French Oak barrique. Red cherries, violets, and pepper on the nose. Earthy with notes of tea leaves, tobacco, and saddle leather. Medium bodied, good acidity, and well balanced. And pronouncing the producer's name is fun too!
