Recently Tasted: PIERI AGOSTINA 2007, DOC Rosso di Montalcino

PIERI AGOSTINA 2007, DOC Rosso di Montalcino (Italy); #163121; 14% ABV; $28
Surprisingly pale cherry colour, even for a Rosso.  Aromas of red cherry, cranberry, plum, dried herbs (black tea), spice (anise), and leather.  It's the fruit flavours that come through on the palate through to the finish with some tart acidity and suede tannins.  Medium bodied, moderate length.  Definitely a food wine, try it with some fresh pasta in a tomato sauce.  Good but over-priced.  Great label.
