2003, Bella Sera Sangiovese Review 

Over All Rating - "Highly Recommended"

Bella Sera Sangiovese is a wonderful simple Tuscan WineWhere we got it and how much it cost. 

We picked this bottle up at Centennial Fine Wines and Spirits in Irving Texas for only 6.99.

Where is this wine made. 

In Central Western Italy in the Di Toscana Region.


General Impression of Bella Sera Sangiovese, 2003

I selected this bottle because I could not think of any reason I was not going to enjoy it.  I have found Bella Sera Pinot Grigio to be one of the best low priced Pinot Grigio on the market and a dearly love the fruity and dry simple flavors of wines made from Italy's signature grape Sangiovese.

I was not disappointed for a moment.  This is an excellent wine for its' price point and has the added benefit of coming from the Di Toscana Appellation of Italy.  


What Flavors are Most Dominant or Evident In This Wine?

This wine is a deep purple color with ripe cherry, raspberry and nutmeg aromas. Balanced and dry, with flavors of plum and cranberry with a soft mildly tannic finish.  There are also some nice raspberry tones as well.  Over all it is a quite simple and very enjoyable wine for everyday drinking.


What foods will this wine go well with?

Clearly most American versions of Italian foods will go well with this.  Honestly this will span a wide range.  The person who prefers reds may find it is a compromise with chicken and anything with tomatoes flavors will go very well.  A surprise may be how well this would accompany quite a few Mexican dishes including enchiladas or tamales with chili.  I know it is unconventional but give it a shot it will pair beautifully.


What's Grapes are In Bella Sera  Sangiovese, 2003?

87% Sangiovese, 5% Merlot, 8% Teroldego


Will I keep it In My Wine Rack, If So How Much?

Sure a bottle or two from time to time.  Easy to pick up any time and it won't age well so no reason to stock up beyond what you will be drinking over then next six months at most.


Who Is Going to Enjoy This Wine?

If you like typical Chianti you will love this one and Sangiovese is the main grape in Chianti wines.  It is a easy to quaff fruity red that will be enjoyed by anyone who likes easy to drink red wines.
