Cortonesi Leonus Toscana 2019
"La Mannella" farm is owned by the Cortonesi family, specifically devoted to making Brunello di Montalcino." Made using 100% Sangiovese grown around the town of Montalcino in Tuscany, Italy, these wines are typically made to be aged, allowing for flavours to become more integrated and textures to soften. The favourable location of the vineyards, combined with the rocky soil where they are planted, all contribute to the making of a deep and elegant Brunello.
This Rosso Toscano is an ardent example of a youthful Brunello. Red cherries, violets and licorice are all predominant flavours; however, it's the tannins and acidity that shine through, making it a fantastic wine, especially when you need a quick fix for dinner.
Get this wine if you like your wine nervy and with tons of texture. This wine pairs brilliantly with dishes prepared with tomato sauce and herbs or an assorted antipasti plate.
