2008 Tenuta di Ghizzano Veneroso Magnum, IGT
Some Forty-two thousand bottles from Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes in total production, hence the production scale is adequate to give some economies of scale and hence good cost performance. 2008 is a aarm late season rescued a cooler-than-average vintage; ripe reds show good structure, purity and elegance. This vintage is classic in style and shows international element. Scores are high, Like RP93 and GAL93 as well.
“The 2008 Veneroso is striking in this vintage. Dark cherries, plums, grilled herbs, dried flowers, sage and underbrush meld together in a powerful, broad-shouldered wine endowed with gorgeous balance and symmetry. Cabernet Sauvignon gives the bright Sangiovese-inflected aromas and flavors an extra kick of structure. Veneroso is 70% Sangiovese and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon.” – Antonio Galloni
