Heartthrob Sangiovese

The second bottle after Bellchambers from the online deal.

Heartthrob Sangiovese 2009
The first thing I noticed was how lightly colored this wine was. It was transparent red, almost like rose syrup. There was plenty of fruit like cherry and cantaloupe along with sweet toffee. It definitely smells like it was going to be sweet. What struck me as I took a first taste was the acid and a lack of tannins. It felt like there was not any structure. It was just simple, light bodied with a tart red cherry flavor and not at all sweet. Oo
