2006 Il Nero di Casanova Sangiovese

Opened another of my stash of 2006 La Spinetta Il Nero di Casanova, IGT Toscana tonight. Just a beautiful, modern take on Sangiovese. Has all the color, dark blackberry fruit and licorice of previous bottles. But this one seemed to have even more tannin and acidity than other bottles. Great pairing with homemade lamb meatballs in tomato sauce, soft polenta and a side of crusty, homemade rosemary bread. Great bottle of wine for under $25.
