1988 Querciagrande, Podere Capaccia

A cold Sunday, in the afternoon and a few unread wine newspapers (what a give away...) lying around - why not open a bottle of wine?

1988 Querciagrande, Podere Capaccia
This 100% Sangiovese Vino da Tavola offers up a deep, mature, tight nose with notes of dried up cherry jam, damp earth, ripe rosemary and dark chocolate. Very, very good. Mature, but not overly so. Some bonfire aromas after a while. Really good.
The taste is mature and firm with notes of ripe, dried cherries, liquorice, veal stock and fried rosemary. A long, warm, fine finish. Drinking well all evening long. I have more, those whould be drunk in 5 years time. Very, very good on this Sunday.
