Podere Scopetone Sangiovese di Toscana 2019

Scopetone Toscana Sangiovese IGT
90 Point Under $15 Rosso Toscana from a Top Brunello Producer
$14.99 per bottle – $13.99 on six – $12.99 by the case!

Just Tasted! I have long been a fan of the wines of Scopetone, from their Rosso di Mntacino to their Brunellos. But this is the first time I have tasted their delicious IGT Rosso Toscana – a 100% Sangiovese Grosso (same as in their Brunello) that offers Brunello-like flavors and nuance in a very affordable, ready to drink wine that is the perfect summer red!

Medium ruby hue, expressive bouquet of dried red cherry and lovely Brunell earth tinged Sangiovese note, followed by similar flavors on the palate with a hint of mochas and dark berry, moderate tannins and medium body. Drink this over the next few years with anything from pizza, pasta, grilled chicken, burgers, chops and more. In stock now and open to taste by the glass. Cheers! Chris

Rated 90 Points, Vinous Media – “A delightful and smoky mix of crushed raspberries, sage, and shaved cedar wafts up from the 2019 Rosso di Toscana. There are depths of dark red fruits and salty mineral tones within, all motivated by a core of vibrant acidity. The 2019 leaves a concentration of fine tannins, along with a bitter twang of sour citrus that helps to balance. This zesty Rosso di Toscana will perform great with a meal today or after some short-term cellaring to soften its contours.”
