Dino Sangiovese di Romagna DOC 2013
Giordano Zinzani’s table wine Dino Sangiovese 2013 does everything right. A typically-good Sangiovese.
This is a really well made wine, if you want something simple and at great value. At under £5 you get a fairly ripe, fruit-forward Sangiovese that’s just about edging away from that watery-body state of some of its competitors.
There’s a long length of dryness that slightly overshadows the wine’s fruity finish, but if you pair the red with food it’s a quick fix. With food the wine is more rounded.
On the nose there’s not a great deal of intensity, but you can recognise that it’s Sangiovese. So this is really a “typical”, although very pleasant, Sangiovese.
£4.99 at Tesco (UK).
A well-made Sangiovese that’s around for pocket-money prices. Fruity, medium length and lots of dryness – good with food.
