2007 Carpineto Dogajolo Toscano: Good with full-flavored dishes.



oct. 16, 2009: we had this tuscan with yogurt-marinated chicken with crushed red pepper and paprika, garlic, lemon, salt and pepper (via http://www.seriouseats.com/recipes/2009/09/grilling-yogurt-marinated-chicken-kebabs-with-aleppo-pepper-recipe.html) and spinach mashed potatoes (via http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/rachael-ray/garlic-mashed-potatoes-with-spinach-recipe2/index.html). greg wasn't feeling very well so he didn't eat or drink much, and at first victoria didn't think either dish was very good. but the next day, it was for some reason much better, and her sentiments might have been cold-related. anyway, the wine was a good match. it was smooth, with a slight cherry to the flavor, we both thought. greg said he would get it again. victoria added, though, that the farther it got from the meal, the more sour the wine tasted. it is 80 percent sangiovese and 20 percent cabernet sauvignon. $13.99 with 5-percent mixed case discount at friar tuck beverage in st. louis.
