Tasting: Terenzi "Madrechiesa" Morellino di Scansano Riserva 2009
Here is the first of several posts I will be sharing about this DOCG that offers great value and quality for lovers of Sangiovese and wine in general. I tasted this lovely wine at the Gambero Rosso event in NYC on 2-15-13.
Elegant nose of leather, tobacco, dried red cherry, dried flowers, and soft perfume notes. The palate has a bit of softness at first, with pretty fruit, lean black and red cherry that has a clean and fresh quality about it. The finish is long and rustic, with plenty of grip, and lingering notes of charred sandalwood, and leather. A serious approach to Morellino that seems capable of development over time. 90 Pts.
