2004 Moris, Morellino di Scansano

2004 Moris, Morellino di Scansano, Vendemmia ($15) -- Italy; imported by Vanguard Wines. Earthy aromas, full fruit flavors, good tannic structure and medium finish. Another good food wine. 90% Sangiovese. I found this wine on a foray into another wine store. A very good choice! From the website:

"Vinified in stainless steel tanks with temperature control, pumped over twice a day during the period of maceration which proceeded for 15 days. The wine was placed into bottle after 4 months without spending any time in wood, then remained an additional 2 months in bottle prior to being released onto the market."

I would have not guessed that it was not aged in wood. But I did not (do not) like plastic plugs as a closure. Get a screwcap or go with real cork.
