I AM SO EXCITED to be able to write this post. As you know I love sharing wines that are in my opinion worth sharing. On this occasion, I get to blog about a wine that was created by other amazing bloggers. I have admired many of these bloggers for quite some time so having them create a wine that I happen to love make this post extra special.
AS MANY OF YOU KNOW I attended the 2016 Wine Bloggers Conference in August. I had an opportunity to taste Masthead at the conference, however, it was just a taste and I loved it then. More recently, I was able to really spend some time with this wine. I am so impressed by this beautiful wine.
THE 2014 SCOTTO MASTHEAD SANGIOVESE is made from 100% Sangiovese sourced from Lodi’s famous Mohr-Fry Vineyards.
APPEARANCE: Vibrant pale ruby with garnet sprinkled throughout.
NOSE: A red berry salad on the nose, minty, medicinal hints, minerality, cinnamon and brown sugar, and sweet tobacco.
PALATE: Dry, medium bodied with red and black berries, cherries, and a hint of plum. Silky and smooth with good acidity. Notes from the barrel of vanilla and butter.
THIS COLLABORATION proved to be a successful undertaking for everyone involved. This wine can be sipped now but definitely has the potential for aging.
THIS ONE IS A RED FRIENDLY wine that I would recommend it is great with lamb, roasted chicken, and mildly salted cheeses.
Definitely a thumbs up!
