June 3, 2011

Last night I opened a bottle Italian Sangiovese (Selection International) with a little bit of concern. It showed a dark, rich hue, wonderful aroma of cherry, and strawberry, so far, I was pleased. The taste took it over the top, smooth long finish with a hint of tannin and acidity.

My concern was its age for a kit wine- I had bottled it in September  2005! Fortunately I used a Nomacorc closure and stored it under good conditions so the wine was in great shape.

It was a most enjoyable evening, it pays to put a few bottles aside (with Nomacorcs) for long term enjoyment.
