Description

A beautifully balanced, multi layered wine which is wonderfully approachable in youth. The nose draws you in with intense aromas of ripe red cherry, raspberries, mulberry and fine spice. The palate is incredibly pure with complex layers of ripe red fruit alongside lingering notes of violets and a hint of nutmeg. There is a silky, almost creamy texture to this wine alongside impressive freshness and an immensely satisfying finish.

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.
