WINEMAKER COMMENTS

We focused on retaining freshness and the vibrancy this vineyard brings to Sangiovese. Super pretty yet somewhat serious with a savoury textural finish.
– Cheers, Jules

Wine Details

Style super vibrant, savoury and delicious
Aroma red cherries and subtle notes of orange rind
Palate lovely vibrant fruit to begin, completed by a creamy savoury edge owing to time on lees in older French oak. The tight, typical Sangiovese tannin profile adds a refreshing crispness to the finish.
Drink now
Food this is a versatile wine and is equally suited to a gamey slow cooked dish or a niçoise salad, margherita pizza or simply some chunks of pecorino or parmesan

Winemaking

Season long and mild with very little disease pressure, even for this large and tight bunched variety. Several passes to control crop load and crowding eased pressures.
Winemaking picked on the eve of a wet break in an otherwise drier couple of months. Open fermentation over 8 days with very gentle cap management followed by malolactic fermentation in seasoned French oak. Left on lees to build mid palate weight to balance the natural tannin and acid profile of Sangiovese.
Maturation seasoned French oak puncheons (500L) and larger format (1350L) for 7 months
ALC/VOL 14.0%

Reviews / Awards

Fun, elegant and incredibly charming... Soft and cruchy acidity, wild strawberries, rhubarb and musk. An elegant, delicate and carefree wine to be enjoyed young, slightly chilled... -Sara @thewineinformer
...the perfect food wine for summer and, like most Sangioveses, it is a dream come true when paired with food. Some pizza to pasta to a slow-cooked meat dish, this wine is sure to be at home. I can see this becoming a staple throughout summer... -Ella @thecheekyvino
