CECCHI BONIZIO SANGIOVESE DI MAREMMA - 2007
90% Sangiovese, 10% other complementary grape varietals. Made in temperature controlled stainless steel followed by at least 3 months of bottle aging. 12.5% alcohol.
Bright red color with aromas and flavors of simple cherry, mineral and spice notes. Soft berries on the mid-palate and light tannins. Acidity is restrained and the wine is somewhat one-dimensional.
SCORE & RECOMMENDATION:
Suggested retail for this wine is $10 a bottle which means you can probably find it in some stores for a few dollars less. This is a serviceable entry level Sangiovese. I would not recommend this wine for big Sangiovese lovers because it lacks saturation and complexity. However, it is easy to drink and a good introduction wine for those just starting to get into red wines. It does not have big tannins or high acidity that can often turn "white wine only crowds" away from reds.
