Sangiovese Tuscany Italy
Montespertoli lies to the southwest of Florence, between the valleys of Pesa and d'Elsa, a range of sloping hills in an open and sun filled countryside, where cypress trees sway in the breeze, ploughed fields are defined by woodlands and olive groves, which yield a golden oil that enriches local cuisine. Sangiovese grapes are vinified by Fattorie Parri to a mix of modern and traditional techniques, into a complex and elegant wine, intense with perfume and supported by sound palate structure.
Ruby colour, garnet hues. Perfume of cherry, anise and black berries, green olive and char. A persistent palate of fleshy fruit flavours, plums, apple and dark red cherry over a frame of pliant tannins, resolving on a long finish of currant, oregano and olive, smoky char and leaf. A fine accompaniement to tomato sugo pasta, plopette, romano and a drizzling of olio al tartufo.
