Mission Briefing

Codename:

Bee Happy

Today’s brilliant 2010 Meadowcroft Sangiovese truly honors its Tuscan roots. Rich, meaty, and understated, this wine delighted our entire tasting panel – and we know that you’ll love it, as well.

With lively brightness that ushers in balanced old world meets new fruit, this delicious wine has plenty of structure, great aromatics and a ton of wonderful flavors.

Stock up today and start planning your early summer al fresco dinner party! Remember to suggest that your guests swirl gently before enjoying this wine, as this will open up its earthy undertones.

Tasting Profile

Look:

A beautiful and deep garnet hued core with pretty ruby edges.

Smell:

This delightful Sangiovese leads with dark cherry, plum, and blackcurrant. After swirling the wine gently, we also appreciated notes of dried rose and subtle blueberry.

Taste:

Plum and cherry give way to earthy flavors including leather, clove, and black pepper.

Finish:

This finish is not overtly fruity – instead, the wine leaves you with smooth leather and silky tannins.

Pairing:

We were torn between two potential pairings for this wine! Half of our tasting panel favored a pasta primavera loaded with fresh artichokes, olives, and roasted bell peppers; the other half was dreaming of a lamb burger with a side of polenta topped with sautéed mushrooms. Agent Red suggests that you try both.
