Wine of the Week – Lungarotti Rubesco Riserva Vigna Monticchio 2005

Elegant and complex define this beautiful blend of Lungarotti’s 70 percent Sangiovese and 30 percent Canaiolo from an Italian hillside vineyard 300 meters above sea level. It offers hints of wild cherry and blackberry, violet and a long and spicy finish. It’s 14 percent ABV with nicely structured tannins, fruitiness and acidity. It’s made for long life so decant it and give it a chance to breathe. This is a wine that won’t disappoint and if you don’t finish it, cork it. It’s even better the second time around! Serve with red meats and aged cheeses, or simply sip it by itself. This is that wine you’ve been saving to treat yourself.
