Sunday evening with Sangiovese

This evening I prepared grilled chicken thighs (special dry rub), grilled French bread and fried corn that was cut fresh from the cob. My wife has a great white BBQ sauce that she makes for the chicken that's seriously good. The wine choice for this evening was an '08 Sangiovese from Venge Vineyards. The Penny Lane had some cherry and a little dark fruit on the nose, a solid structure in the mouth and nice finish. To me, it's drinks like a Pinot Noir. I've been receiving wine from Venge since '06 and I truly enjoy every bottle they send me. Kirk Venge and team continue to create some great vino. Visit them @ and try a bottle or two. Cheers to all...
