Crushed and fermented on skins like every red wine, but pressed relatively early to ensure that it is approachable – a big, rich, tannic wine was not the aim! Matured for only 6 months in some of our older French oak barrels, it proudly showcases the variety’s youthful exuberance and charm. Sangiovese is renowned for its bright colour, and when it’s good, the aromas and flavours are similarly bright and attractive. By definition then, this one’s definitely good! It shows a touch of the variety’s classic savoury tannins, but our careful approach has toned them down to a supporting role and allowed for the intense cherry and plum aromas and flavours to shine through. We love it with arancini, salumi, or even grilled sardines served with garlic and spinach or asparagus.
