2014 Toscana Rosso "Semifonte" (Ciona, Podere)

Podere Ciona, Toscana Rosso "Semifonte", Tuscany, Italy 2014

{organic} 90% Merlot, 10% Alicante Bouschet

BLACK PLUM & BOYSENBERRY, OLIVE & OREGANO, BRIAR & BERGAMOT

This compelling combo of Merlot (predominantly) and Alicante Bouchet (the black-fleshed bruiser offspring of Grenache) more than manages to be Tuscan totale in temperament. Even sans Sangiovese, there’s an unmistakable aura that wouldn’t be out of place in Brunello. Its lack fruit gusto gracefully leaves plenty of room in the mix for distinctively Etruscan rusticities and elegant, herbaceous undercurrents shine through.

Serving Suggestion: Mutton “osso buco” w/ bone marrow-blackberry sauce &/or root vegetable ribollita w/ oregano (warning: instantaneous autumnal teleportation).
