TENUTA DELLE MACCHIE ALBERAIA 2011 TOSCANA ROSSO

Our Wine of the Month 2 for June is a fantastic, 100% Sangiovese from the Casole d'Elsa commune in Siena, southwest of Florence in Italy. ‘Alberaia’ refers to a small group of trees typical of the landscape surrounding Casole d’Elsa. The wine is a harmonious blend of elegance and strength, finesse and power. The nose presents a mélange of fruits and spice with cherry licorice, blueberries, red plum, black pepper and mixed baking spices-- a touch of balsa wood is in the background. The palate showcases sweet cherry fruit, red fruit leather, more spice and wood while forward acidity and ample tannins keep it clean and balanced. Alberaia drinks well on its own while snacking and cooking in the kitchen. Red and white meats (roasted chicken and lighter game like pheasant, quail and the like) are good companions as well as are grilled vegetables, salads, pasta dishes and tomato-based sauces.
