Tasting notes: Kayra Vintage Sangiovese 2007

It’s one of the interesting wines of Kayra’s Vintage series. Produced by the Sangiovese grapes coming from Manisa – Turgutlu’s Halilbeyli village. This 2007 vintage has some highlights of brown in color, an opaque red. On the nose it is quite intensive than I was expecting. Nice and smooth complexity. Mint, vanilla and toasty notes coming from the oak are followed by red berries, dried tomato, blueberry, some violet and earthy – spicy hints.

On the palate not has got the acidity which we may expect from a typical sangiovese. However, there is an interesting smoothness and light body on the palate. Certainly there is more fruit especially in the mid-palate. Oaky notes are much more behind than the nose. There is some sweet structure during the medium length finish.

It is a very light bodied wine, for the people who do not like tannins.  Totally 2300 bottles were produced. Mine was no. 917. It is 47 TL in Rouge Wine Bar.
