Foxen 7200 Sangiovese Guglielmo Grosso 2008

SANTA MARIA VALLEY | CALIFORNIA | $32
A complex integration of cherry and blackberry fruit with ginger-spice cookie and candied orange peel, plus notes of raspberry, plum, clove, graphite and tar. There’s a fruit cake-like quality at play here, and this makes for a most interesting wine. Enjoyable, complex, superbly integrated. It’s that garish early-Madonna fashion: many disparate components coming together to create something that works — but no undergarment as outerwear here. A very good wine. (Reviewed 12/30/12)
