Review: $ Torre Sangiovese di Romagna Riserva, Italy, 2001

Check out today's pricing and retail availability for Torre Sangiovese.

Original tasting and review : This is Torre Sangiovese di Romagna Riserva, Italy, 2001, finished at 13% alcohol, tasted a whopping 12 years from vintage date.

In the glass: Deep magenta, brick and orange.  Opaque
in the center.

On the nose: Poured at room temperature and swirled vigorously, shows some old world fruit with a broccoli coating.  From the aroma, seems like this will be too old and oxidized to be enjoyable.

On the palate: The primary elements on the palate are in fact as anticipated, fruit hidden in an oxidized core.

In summary: Overall, too old to be rated on the Spirit of Wine scale.
