Tasting Notes

Grignano ‘Pietramaggio’ Rosso is an excellent value IGT Toscana wine made with 75% Sangiovese grapes and a variety of other, local red grapes. A delicious, easy-going wine, loaded with dark cherries mixed with tobacco and spice. Supple and sweet, with fresh acidity enlivening the juicy dark berry and mint flavors.  Finishes moderately long, with supple tannins.  Ideal with traditional Tuscan cuisine, pasta dishes, grilled meats, and cheeses.

A great value wine which is excellent with food.
