Taste the wines of Lungarotti: San Giorgio 1990
We’ll taste together one of the most important wines from this producer, the San Giorgio 1990. First of all the vintage 1990 was considered one of the best Vintages from the past Century. It’s a blend of 2 grapes: Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese grape.
The first step is to see the color on the palm of your hand: this is a ruby red.
The second step is putting it under your nose: you will find red fruit,like red cherry and a balsamic note, like violet and licorice.
The 3rd and last step is tasting the wine with a small sip: we can taste the red fruit, again we can feel licorice and dark chocolate. The tannin is very soft because it’s a 1990 wine, and it’s ready to drink.
