Sangiovese – The Italian Champion

Tue 1st Nov 2016 - 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Price: £30.00

Sangiovese, a dark-berried vine, is the most widely planted grape variety in Italy. Virtually Synonymous with the red wines of Tuscany, and all the romanticism that goes with the territory, Sangiovese is the core constituent in some of the great names in Italian wine

SANGIOVESE MONTE DI CIELO 2015
Very slight aroma, lightly fruity,  Thin, light colour. Light, fresh summery taste. Berries and dark fruits.

CHIANTI CLASSICO 2011
What makes unique Chianti Classico compared to other Chianti wines is the unmistakable pink label with the Black Rooster seal. This particular label is the symbol of the Chianti Classico Wine Consortium, founded in 1924 to protect, promote this wine and prevent wine fraud.

Chianti Classico is a DOCG wine and shows unique peculiarities and characteristics. To be named “Classico” is not enough to be produced within the Chianti region. In fact Classico wine has to respect specific rules. Its blend is 80% for Sangiovese, red grape typical of this area, 20% for other grapes that can native grapes such as Canaiolo and Colorino, as well as other international varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.

Its peculiarities are a limpid ruby red color, floral notes for its odor and with an harmonious, dry and sapid flavor with a good level of tannin.

BRUNELLO DI MONTALCINO 2010
This gorgeous Brunello proves that top producers can make outstanding wines. It opens with an elegant bouquet of violet, red berry, spice and a whiff of new leather. The delicious palate delivers fleshy black cherry layered with mint, licorice, balsamic herbs and cinnamon-spice. It’s impeccably balanced with firm tannins and fresh acidity that give it an age-worthy structure

RUBESCO DI TORGIANO 2012
Concentrated deep ruby red in colour with violet hues, with an ample bouquet with delicate notes of cloves, wild berries and violet, good body, with balanced tannins and a long and fruity finish.
