La Stella 2014 Arioso

A light coloured red that is medium bodied, chiseled, elegant and confident. Arioso excites the senses and reminds the beholder why Sangiovese is considered one of the most noble of all grape varieties. Notes of bing and red cherries greet you on the nose followed by rawhide leather, potpourri and wild desert flowers. On the palate the wine is linear with outstanding tension of natural acidity and rustic tannins that demand food or extended cellar time to soften. Try a bottle on or shortly after release to satisfy your curiosity and then let the remainder of your bottles tucked away in the deep, dark, cold part of your cellar for half a decade plus. Tuscan wild boar stew or rabbit ragu over polenta are two of our favorite pairings.
