WINE OF THE DAY: 2014 BRUNELLI POGGIO APRICALE ROSSO TOSCANO
The 2014 Brunelli Poggio Apricale Rosso Toscano is one of my “must have” recommendations for anyone who desires a great bottle of wine. Luca Brunelli, has crafted this delightful Rossa Toscana for everyday enjoyment and had a very good value. Over 86% of all Brunello wines are sold in the US.
This wine is 85% Sangiovese, 10 Merlot, and 5% Colorino. For those of you who are not familiar with those grapes, that just means that this is a damn good wine. The Sangiovese is the remaining grape that comes from Tuscany. It was kept in oak barrels for three months which gives it is fresh style.
This wine gives you classic Tuscan aromas like cherry, sage, blackberry, surrounded by a distinct leatherness. There are only 380 cases of this wine that is bottled every year. So you need to hurry up and get you one for they are all gone.
