Staglin Family Sangiovese Stagliano 2015
WA93: Pale to medium ruby-purple colored, the 2015 Sangiovese Estate is redolent of red cherries, crushed red currants and stewed tea with hints of sautéed herbs, tobacco leaves and fertile earth. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is bursting with juicy red berry flavors, supported by grainy tannins and a wonderfully lively backbone, finishing long and earthy. This was tasted as a barrel sample.
VM92: The 2015 Sangiovese is lush, open-knit and quite giving. Sweet red cherry, tobacco, mint, crushed flowers and licorice are all given an extra kick of lushness from the natural richness of the year. Soft tannins add to the wine's considerable appeal.
