Di Majo Norante Sangiovese 2006

When having a spicy, tomato-based pasta I turned to an interesting little wine on the list at Racines in Denver, an IGT classified wine, Di Majo Norante Sangiovese. As you can see from the picture the wine is a lovely bright violet in the glass, hinting at the nose of violets, blackberries, and currants, with just a touch of spice. The wine is medium bodied and being a Sangiovese it had a pretty high level of acidity with good dark fruits and a spicy oakish taste and tight tannins that combined to give a long finish.
