There’s nothing wrong with a ‘nice little’ wine. And that’s how I would describe the 2007 Donna Laura Ali Sangiovese di Toscana.

The wine is available at $9-$11. I bought this bottle at Cork & Cracker in Indianapolis.

It’s a dry wine for the price point. You get a dark fruit and almost musty like quality to the wine. There even is a hint of tobacco or similar characteristic near the finish. It’s medium bodied wine with a decent finish. It won’t overpower you or your food.

It’s a nice example of 100 percent Sangiovese – and imminently affordable. It’s worth picking up if you’re looking for an inexpensive bottle of Italian!
