Mineral & austere. Gunpowder & bitter chocolate.
Vigna Alta from Badia di Morrona has a ruby colour with garnet hues.
On the nose it’s mineral with flint and gunpowder.
The mouthfeel is austere and chewy. On the palate it shows bitter chocolate and tobacco.
The finish is long. This wine is asking for time!
Wine making grape
Sangiovese is a red Italian wine grape variety named after the Latin sanguis Jovis, which means “Jupiter’s blood.” Though it is native to most of central Italy, from Romagna to Lazio, Campania, and Sicily, it is best known outside of Italy as the sole component of Brunello di Montalcino and Rosso di Montalcino, as well as the primary component of the blends Chianti, Carmignano, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, and Morellino di Scansano, though it can also be used to make varietal wines like Sangiovese di RomagnaLink to here... | Derived from 'Sangiovese' on Wikipedia
