Ackerman Alaviagna Tosca

ACKERMAN “Alavigna Tosca” 2015

60% Sangiovese, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon (“Super Tuscan Style”) blend. Bright and bold aromas of red cherry liqueur, tarragon and black tea. Tastes like a big, happy mouthful of ripe wild red cherries with back-up pomegranate, raspberry, new leather, coriander and black pepper. Medium bodied, leaning toward medium-full, fine tannins, lovely acidity, modest oak. Everything’s in place. Drinking like a champ. I really enjoyed with a sausage & mushroom pie at Forge Pizzeria.
