A juicy Italian in a squat bottle

Quantity:

Importer Steve Bennett has a happy knack of making some great European wine discoveries. This Sangiovese from the Northern Eastern Italian region of Emilia-Romagna is a dark, meaty, sweet fruited wine that finishes nice and dry. Packaged in a distinctive 'squat' bottle we are sure this will find plenty of happy followers.


Paul Tudor MW, noted.co.nz, May 2018 (2015 Vintage)
"One of the most intense and truest examples of sangiovese that I have ever encountered, and yet it does not hail from Tuscany, which is traditionally associated with Italy’s most celebrated red-wine variety. Crushed berry fruit overlaid with exotic spices, clean and fresh to taste, with chewy tannins, yet ripe and generous. Outstanding value for money."


4 Stars & 17.0/20 Raymond Chan November 2017 (2015 Vintage)
"Full, saturated black-red colour, with slight ruby hues on the edge. The nose is full and well-packed with ripe black berried and dark-red cherry fruit aroma along with some black plum and port-like notes. Medium-full bodied, the palate is rich and ripe with mouthfilling flavours of savoury black berry and cherry fruit with black plum elements. The flavours unfold port-like and jammy layers. The fruit is underlined by fine, grainy tannin textures, with integrated, soft acidity. The wine has good energy and carries positively to a softly full, sweet and savoury red fruited finish. This is a very ripe Sangiovese with savoury black berry and cherry flavours with plum and porty notes on a fine, grainy palate. Match with roasted and slow-cooked game meat dishes over the next 3+ years. Sangiovese fruit from the Bidente Valley in the Rubicone region of Emilia-Romagna, Italy, fermented to 13.0% alc."
