2014 Soffocone di Vincigliata, Bibi Graetz

Description

A pure expression of Sangiovese, the 2014 Soffocone di Vincigliata is a mid weight wine with a dark ruby appearance. The nose reveals some raw notes with plum, dark berry and spice. The interesting fact is that although the wine does not strive to deliver pure balance in a conventional sense, it does show a unique sense of harmony. It takes a while, but ultimately this wine comes together in seamless fashion. Be warned, however, that it keeps you guessing for a very long time.

Sangiovese

Sangiovese

A black grape widely grown in Central Italy and the main component of Chianti and Vino Nobile di Montepulciano as well as being the sole permitted grape for the famed Brunello di Montalcino.

It is a high yielding, late ripening grape that performs best on well-drained calcareous soils on south-facing hillsides. For years it was blighted by poor clonal selection and massive overcropping - however since the 1980s the quality of Sangiovese-based wines has rocketed upwards and they are now some of the most sought after in the world.

It produces wines with pronounced tannins and acidity, though not always with great depth of colour, and its character can vary from farmyard/leather nuances through to essence of red cherries and plums. In the 1960s the advent of Super Tuscans saw bottlings of 100% Sangiovese wines, as well as the introduction of Sangiovese/Cabernet Sauvignon blends, the most famous being Tignanello.
