Wine Review: This bright red Sangiovese from Reininger opens with a pleasant blueberry and black cherry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and smooth. The flavor profile is a tasty gentle blueberry and gentle oak blend. I also detected hints of black cherry and minerality. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins linger nicely. This Sangiovese is food friendly and would pair nicely with Theresa's meatloaf. Enjoy - Ken

Your comments on this wine:





Cork Lore: A cork tree must be at least 25 years old before its bark can be harvested the first time, but it cannot be used for wine stoppers until the third harvest. Cork trees can be stripped of their bark no more than every 9 to 12 years. In one harvest, enough cork is removed from the average tree to make 4,000 wine stoppers.
