Casa Smith Cinghiale Sangiovese 2020
|United States, Washington, Wahluke Slope
On the nose, the 2020 Sangiovese Cinghiale takes on shades of teaberry alongside ripe red plum and underbrush tones. The palate is soft and elegant with ripe red fruits that collide with minerals and suggestions of smoked meats.
The 2020 Sangiovese Cinghiale has bright cherry fruits and some earthy notes yet more firm, almost gritty tannins on the finish. It has plenty of fruit, though, and is ideal for near-term drinking.
