A beautiful and intense Sangiovese that was hand selected from the oldest vineyard site in Montosoli. The wine was aged in Slavonian oak casks for 3 years before being bottles. The wine has aromas of cassis, hazelnut, dried berries, vanilla and smoke. The structure is smooth with velvety tannins and a long, persistent finish.
Tuscany, within Central Italy, lies on the western side of the country. Tuscany is famous for its rolling hills, the popular region of Chianti and the black grape variety, Sangiovese. Sangiovese wines here usually produce high levels of acidity and tannin with aromas of red cherry, plum, and died herbs. Sangiovese does so well throughout Tuscany as it needs a warm climate to ripen fully. Designated regions to keep an eye out for are Chianti DOCG, Chianti Classico DOCG, Brunello di Montalcino DOCG, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano DOCG. Additionally, Bolgheri DOC, for bold reds from the coast of Central Italy.
