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.
Sangiovese is Italy’s most planted grape varietal and can taste quite different throughout, depending on the region it is grown in. It is the key grape variety of Tuscany’s distinguished Chianti and Montalcino regions. Sangiovese is generally higher in acidity with hints of local earth and herbs including roasted tomato, balsamic and oregano making this wine a great match for you guessed it: tomato sauce. It is sure to stand up beautifully with your home-cooked Italian meal. AKA “Prugnolo Gentile” in the Montepulciano region within Italy.
