Expert review

All about elegance and class, this lovely red entices with aromas of small forest berries, blue flowers, crushed mint and new leather. On the vibrant, delicious palate, taut, refined tannins seamlessly support juicy Marasca cherry, spiced cranberry, star anise and a hint of mocha. Fresh acidity keeps it balanced and precise. Drink 2024–2036

The Grape

Sangiovese

Sangiovese is a Tuscan red grape variety that has become the most planted and famous variety in Italy. You may know this variety by a few other names like Chianti, Brunello di Montalcino, Montefalco Rosso or Carmignano, but rest assured it's all the same grape, but it may grow in different regions. Sangiovese is made for food and shows with aromas and flavours of cherry, red berries, roasted tomato, balsamic, Italian herbs, coffee and cured meats, backed by cutting acidity and a good grip of tannins. The best examples come from Montalcino (Brunello di Montalcino) and can age decades!
