WINE REVIEW: Salustri 2018 ‘Marleo’ Rosso Montecucco DOC, Italy ($20)

by Andrew Chalk

Montecucco is in the south of Tuscany so it is no surprise to find that this wine is 90% Sangiovese (the other 10% is the obscure grape Ciliegiolo). Small wonder that in character this wine is a Chianti.

The tannins are still firm and the prominent acid level makes this a bracing wine to quaff without food. Combined with a pasta and marinara sauce, generously topped with cheese the tannin and acid levels are an advantage, making this wine shine through the strong food flavors.

Good value.
