One of life's great mysteries has been why I don't like Sangiovese. I always feel like I should enjoy the grape because I like well structured, savoury wines and it often - when unmanipulated - is like that. So I was happy that I got to share a good bottle today of Podere le Boncie Chianti Classico Le Trame 2004.
It had a nose of ripe cherry, sandalwood and ground nuts. Juicy palate with good grip, very savoury. Long and very charming. So maybe I can be won over to this grape.
