Description

Meaning 'ancient mountain' in Italian, this Sangiovese-dominant blend comes from high altitude vines in the heart of Italy's most famous wine region, Tuscany. Started by ex-pat New Zealander Neil Empson and his wife Maria, Neil is part of the furniture in Italy now, even being named an Honorary Member of the League of Chianti and a Knight of the Order of Truffles!

Smells

Oregano, with dried cherry, rose florals and subtle cured meats. the unmistakable aromas of Tuscany!

Tastes

Classic Sangiovese dominance, with fine dusty tannins and rounded juicy acids embracing a collection of bright red fruits (cherry dominant) infused with spice and liquorice. Subtle cured meat flavours meld beautifully with the gorgeously juicy red fruits that permeate the luscious and long finish. Medium bodied and very elegant, this wine will come alive with food - break out the tomato puree and get creating or dial up your favourite pizza!
