This is an incredible wine with precision and focus. On the nose it has hints of strawberry compote, black cherry, and tobacco. On the palate the wine develops even more with a little orange zest, cassis, and a long smokey finish. This wine continues to develop for hours on end. Drink now through 2036.
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.
