Savignola Paolina Il Granaio 2009

Savignola Paolina Il Granaio 2009

$22.50

Ludovica (known as “Ludo” among friends) and her husband Antonio produce just 2,000 bottles of this jammy, tasty Super Tuscan blend of Merlot and Sangiovese.

This tiny production gem is dark garnet in color with a mouthful of blackberry, blueberry, dried figs and nice black cherrycurrants coming through on the nose and palate.  There is a pleasant earthiness from the local Panzano red soils, which balances nicely with the modest tannins and great acidity you expect to find in wines with Sangiovese.  Delicious.

This full-bodied Super Tuscan screams for hearty meals like beef stewswild boar ragù, and grilled-rare venison steaks.  For veggie fans, I'd pair this with a rich cassoulet with beansgrilled portobello mushrooms, or even a garlicky lentil soup (use lentils from Castelluccio!).
