Wine Description

(2008 Vintage) Appealing brilliant warm ruby hue. Spicy ripe cherry aromas unfold with notes of stone, roasted nuts and rose petal. Medium full and supple on the palate, with food-friendly silty tannin, balanced acidity, and toasty flavors of dried fruit and herb-roasted meat. The most versatile of red wines, Benessere Sangiovese can be slightly chilled and served with grilled salmon or enjoyed in a big glass at room temperature with Tuscan-style steak.
