Ortman 2008 Sangiovese O2 Series


This delicious red is quite impressive for its great texture and balance. Forward fruit flavors of black cherries, blackberries, and pomegranate are nicely rounded out by zingy cranberry and raspberry notes. The subtle spice and herb notes make it just the ticket for pasta with a hearty meat or mushroom ragù, a great pizza, chicken cacciatore, or Tuscan-style steak. It’s just $20 retail, a bargain compared to its peers, available at Ortman’s tasting room in Paso Robles, and at Central Coast Wine in SLO.
