Wine of the Week 04/18 – 4/24

Benegas Sangiovese 2006 $19.95
Overview: The 2006 Sangiovese is dark ruby-colored with a lovely red cherry perfume, notes of cedar and mineral, and an elegant personality. This smooth, friendly wine could easily pass for Tuscan in a blind tasting. Give it two years in the cellar and enjoy it from 2010 to 2018.
