2016 Fongoli Rossofongoli Umbria Rosso

Natural wine. Organic. 60% Sangiovese, 40% Montepulciano.

Black and blue fruits, mushrooms, copper and dusty clay scents on the yeasty nose. Fucking delicious. Dark and brooding with blackberry, plum, blueberry, hay, copper and light orange tea notes. This wine has a lot going on. Finishes bone dry with black fruits, tea, minerals and hay carrying on for days. Great acidity. Grippy tannins. Great food wine. Charcuterie, yes… but can also stand up against a pork or pot roast or grilled red meats. Serve this with a slight chill. $20
