Dusty garnet color. Inviting aromas of baked cherries, roasted beets, rhubarb, spiced tea, and oregano with a slightly chewy, lively, dryish medium body and an effortless, interesting, medium-length focaccia and cured meats finish with well-integrated, chewy tannins and light oak flavor. A table-tuned Tuscan Sangiovese with complexity, interest and balance.

Sangiovese di Toscana is not a legal term in Tuscany, but is being used by a few wineries to describe their red wines that are made primarily from Sangiovese, the region's most famous variety. Most of these producers do this for the sake of marketing, as they feel consumers will purchase a wine labeled Sangiovese, rather than calling it by the legal definition of IGT Toscana.
