Le Cimate 2010 Montefalco Rosso DOC (SRP $20): Medium-deep crimson in color, this blend of 60% Sangiovese, 15% Merlot,15% Sagrantino, and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, offers inviting aromas of plum, red and dark berry fruit, black tea, and a touch of menthol. The palate is dense and assertive, showing deep, dark berry fruit flavors with generous tannins that coat the palate, ending with a nice acid lift to prop up the medium-length drying finish. This is an attractive wine, but one that needs its youthfulness tamed by a tasty slab of well-marbled beef. Region: Umbria, Italy. (Other info: ABV 14.5%, fermented in steel, 15 day maceration, cork enclosure). – www.myvinespot.com
