2007 Giacomo Sangiovese Toscana – Episode 121

By Patrick

This is a nice easy drinking Sangiovese from Toscana which rolls in under $10 a bottle. This wine puts most chianti’s to shame under $15. A value wine that you can cook with and drink which is always a good combo.

    Is it Chianti or Sangiovese? Just when I thought I knew the difference you go and confuse me. Let me make a guess. Chianti is made with Sangiovese but this one isn’t made in the Chianti area? Nice zoom action.

    I’m gonna head out and find this stuff! Big Sangio fan, but you’re so right…it is hit or miss, especially in this price range

    Def. the toughest thing is finding a decent low priced one the WL has it in stock still

    Nice wine review!

    I feel comfortable about knowing about what it tastes like by your comments.

    Thanks again. I find my self coming to your website here on a nightly basis.

    Thanks- I drink my wines not just a taste so usually I have a window of time to talk about them which I think helps- What is new for you in the wine world?

    I actually got the wine bug on June 3, 2003.

    When I was young, my father purchased juice from a local supplier, and he made wine in 7 barrels in our basement. We had a wine cellar in the basement of our house. I could taste the wine whenever I wanted to(I'm talking mid-late 1960's).

    No interest in wine until 2003, when I was reading about the health benefits of wine, thought I would try one. Studied 5 hours all night long after that first wine, and haven't stopped since.

    I have been tasting wines from all around France, Italy, some Australia, some South Africa, some west coast, all around the world…. Whenever I taste a wine, I review it, compare it with any other review I can find, go to the local website on it, then take a google map fly-over tour of the region, take a visual tour of the town it's from etc…it's like taking a vacation, built around a wine and where it's from.

    I've been very blessed, in that even though I've only worked about 5 weeks in the last 2+ years, I can pretty much afford to buy anything. But in the last 3 weeks or so, I've been busy putting a long-time friend I've been taking care of for 12+ years, into a nursing home. I haven't been trying too much new recently.

    However, I find myself strangely drinking more white wine than red. I mean I learned about wine on the dry, tannic, Bordeaux's, Chateauneuf du Pape's, Brunello di Montelcino's…

    But now I'm drinking Rieslings, Moscato's, Vinho Verde's and Torrontes.

    I mean that in the white wine world, I cut my teeth on Chablis's, white Burgundies, Pouilly-Fume's and Sancerre's

    Oh well, it's getting late. More later. There's a little of my wine life story.

    Thank you again for your interest. You can never predict how important your response will mean to a commenter in their life at that moment.

    Let's see your website soar!

    That is a great story and all the best to your friend. I find it always amazing how people get into wine and take it in different directions. Nothing like growing up with the Barrels right in the house. I am starting to do more and more of what you do in that researching the wines and areas and the problem for me is that I want to buy an airplane ticket that second.

    I enjoy white wine a whole lot however the wife is not such a big fan- we really differ on Rose' I can drink those a few times a week in the summer and she does not care for them that much- The other issue is that I drink them like water- LOL bottle gone way to quick
