Sangiovese, Tuscany, Italy

We’re kickin’ it old school with the unbroken stallion of this wine. Founder and winemaker Piero Lo Franco valued the idea of self-sufficiency and was among Tuscany’s organic pioneers. He now oversees a biodynamic & family-run farm in the Tuscan hills around Castiglion Fibocchi. The diversity is truly shocking – 190 hectares of vineyards, 14,000 olive trees, 1,250 sheep, 800 chickens (+ eggs), 10 horses, a herd of sheep (whose Pecorino cheese is rubbed in the residues from the olive press), honey from 100 hives, sweet chestnut trees and PLENTY of fruits & vegetables! Sounds like we need to move off-grid, start a farm & change our names ASAP! The land is carefully cultivated on the loose ‘Galestro’ (or rocky-schist & clay) soil, which enable the Sangiovese based red wines to express great complexity and longevity. This blend of roasty-toasty Sangiovese (90%) and concentrated Cabernet Sauvignon (10%) is heavy & sure of itself. Weathered, willful & wise with notes of violets, underbrush, grilled truffles and herbs, tobacco puffs, smeared blackcurrants & a cherry on top.
