Carr 2009 Vandale Vineyard Sangiovese (Santa Ynez Valley)

This Sangiovese is marked by two things, extreme dryness and high acidity. It's as light in the mouth as a Pinot Noir, with measured flavors of red cherries, raisins and pepper, and a toasty jacket of new oak. You can drink it now, but it needs rich Italian fare, with lots of cheese, olive oil and fatty meats, to tame those acids.
