Cantina del Redi

Pleos Toscana Rosso IGT

Wine Type: Red Wine

Country: Italy

Region: Toscana

Grapes: 100% Sangiovese

Winery Tasting Notes: Intensely purple in color; fresh and fruit-forward with notes of red berry; good body with soft and consistent tannins; extremely balanced with well integrated oak.  Enjoy with red meat, aged cheeses and traditional Italian dishes like pasta with tomato sauce.

James Suckling: “Black cherries, underbrush, cloves, ash and tar. Full-bodied with structured and chewy tannins and fruit-forward but very enjoyable finish.”

International Wine Report: “The 2015 ‘Pleos‘ Sangiovese is a wonderful showing. It instantly opens inviting aromatics of fresh dark cherries and red plums woven together with spices, herbs, fresh cut florals and underlying hints of leather all emerging from the glass. On the palate this is medium-plus bodied and well-structured with firm, yet nicely polished tannins and lovely acidity keeping it fresh and inviting. It continues to impress with its excellent overall balance as it heads into the long finish. While this is already quite appealing in its youth, it should also continue to drink beautifully over the course of the next five years.”
