It had an aroma of Cherries, vanilla, tobacco (??) and a hint of spice
On the palate, it was a medium bodied wine with a fruity taste with a certain degree of spiciness and mild tannins. It was pretty smooth and had a rather nice long finish.
I was fortunate that I was introduced to this wine by Arnav of Azzuri bay during our ‘Old Shepherdians ‘ reunion at Azzuri bay, and hence there were a variety of dishes that were pouring out of the Kitchen of Azzuri Bay. So i had a fair bit of experimentation about which particular food paired well with the wine. And the winners of the pairing contest were spicy Beef and mutton fry, though it paired well with pasta too.
Sangioveses tend to taste better with age, hence i would look to pick up a few bottles fir the wine fridge for later. It retails for about Rs 850 at the Wine stores in any City outside of Chennai, most restaurants in Chennai Price it around Rs. 2200 for a bottle.
