Vinous 91 Points! From Vinous: "The 2012 Palistorti di Valgiano is bursting at the seams with personality. Juicy dark cherries, smoke, earthiness, licorice and violets are all super-expressive in the glass. Fleshy and boisterous, with plenty of intense, super-ripe fruit, the 2012 Palistorti di Valgiano delivers the goods, and then some. Drink this fleshy, immensely pleasing red over the next handful of years."

An "a-ha" wine moment from maybe 12 years ago that I have not seen on a shelf in maybe 8 years. The moment was the brilliance of learning how acidity in wine acts as a preservative and enhancer of a wine (consumed over 3 days). Sangiovese (70%) and usually a split of Merlot & Syrah from biodynamically farmed vines in northwestern Tuscany (Lucca). An odd combination that works so well in this instance. Nothing over complicated here in a great way, fresh red sappy cherry fruit, a touch of savory on a medium body frame with some firm and dry tannin. Not to mention that crackling and racy acidity!

Gloomy weather and bucatini all'amatriciana called for a slutty sangiovese and this fit the bill perfectly. Lovely notes of cedar and cherry, fresh acidic structure, JV Chianti this ain't.
