Umani Ronchi Sangiovese
Marche IGTStyle Heavy red Old World Country
Sangiovese is the grape behind the
great wines of Chianti, Brunello di
Montalcino, as well as this wine—
and judging by the exclamation point
on this bottle, the folks at Umani
Ronchi are awfully excited about it.
We can see why: it has the classic
mix of earth and fruit flavors that
makes many Italian wines so
appealing. If you hate the smell of
farms or forests, you should probably
There’s lots of ripe fruit here,
along with earthy aromas that made
one blind taster think of forest floor.Mouth
It starts off full and fruity, but
quickly adds flavors of earth,
undergrowth, and what one taster
identified as an animal byproduct
we’ll euphemistically call barnyard.
But trust us, it’s great.
