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.
90/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, April 2022 (2020 Vintage)
"Sweetly ripe and elegantly perfumed on the nose showing dark cherry, floral, green olive and almond notes, leading to a fruit-expressive palate offering juicy flavours combined with supple texture and fine tannins, making it immediately appealing. At its best: now to 2025."
90/100 Cameron Douglas MS, May 2022 (2020 Vintage)
"Aromas and flavours of plums and tart cherries, crumbled stones and light flavours of vanilla and a touch of clove. Taut, fresh and youthful on the palate with a classic firm texture driven by tannins and acidity then flavours of red fruit and plum to reflect the variety and bouquet. An even lengthy finish with best drinking from day of purchase through 2026+"
