"Baby" Brunello

*** Baby Brunello ***

Lettie Teague writes that retailers, for different reasons, often use the word "baby" before wines known to be costly such as Brunello, Barolo, Bordeaux or Sancere. 

We do too sometimes. John calls Poggio Apricale a "Baby Brunello." Why?
"In this case, Apricale is made by the same winemaker who makes the Brunello
for the winery, the vineyard is adjacent to the grapes used for the Brunello
and the vines are from the same clones."

Azienda Agricola Martoccia di Brunelli Luca
Poggio Apricale. 85% Sangiovese Grosso, 10% Merlot and 5% Colorino.
The wine has a bright ruby red color and aromas to match. This fresh and young red wine is delicous now but will develop more complexity with a few years in the cellar. Brimming with notes of cherry, raspberry and black fruit, incorporating notes of smoky sage, terra cotta earthiness and soft, leathery tannins.

$19.99! Oh Baby!
