2018 Maritma "The 4 Old Guys" Sangiovese Toscana

SKU #1426056

This has been the #1 selling Italian wine for more than two decades at K&L! You can't get that kind of continued success without a supremely fantastic quality-to-price ratio. The southern Tuscan coast is a wonderful location for winemaking, with stable temperatures and a solid history of quality, yet no fame and fortune. Incredibly priced bargains come out of the region, and the proof is in the bottle. This wine is wonderful, soft, forward and easy-to-drink Sangiovese with an enticing mixture of cherry, plum and earth. Eminently drinkable.

The best selling Italian wine in store doesn't keep that title without some serious quality and a commitment to improvement from its producer. The 2018 edition of "4 Old Guys" is great juice with a ton of character and expression for the money. A quintessentially Italian wine. The nose is popping with red cherry, brownstone, and toasted bay leaf. The palate is matching with Italian herb and darker fruit joining in. Readily apparent but pleasant tannins are matched by a nice acidity. I'm sending a couple to my friends; send some to yours.

This is one of those great wines that year after year just keeps producing value and performance in every bottle. I just poured this at a staff tasting to remind my colleges what a super value this is. Sometimes “The 4 Old Guys” gets looked over because it’s been stocked at K&L for many vintages. This 2018 is one of their best to date. I recently took this home and was amazed. On the palate you will find black cherries with a touch of earth. In the mouth, the wine is medium bodied with fine concentration and soft tannins. I give this two thumbs up. This is a perfect value wine to serve with burgers or grilled Portobello, all summer long.

Take a Pizza bubbling hot from the oven, slathered in piquant tomato sauce, mozzarella, pepperoni, onions, black olives and mushrooms, or any combination of toppings that you desire, as pizza is that most democratic of dishes. Now grab a fresh bottle of 2018 Maritma "Four Old Guys" Sangiovese. uncork it and pour yourself a glass. My review of the last vintage paid loving homage to Fellini, Monica Bellucci and Borsalinos, but I'll just cut to the quick while the pizza is still hot. Mouthwatering dark plums and black cherry fruit caressed by Tuscan dust and vibrant acidity, this bright, polished Sangiovese is the perfect savory companion to that bubbling pie catching your eye. Bevi!
