Evolved & complex. Nail polish & potpourri.
Opera in Rosso 2016 from Podere La Chiesa has a ruby colour with garnet hues.
On the nose it’s evolved and complex with a floral side but also more ethereal notes of varnish and nail polish. There is also potpourri, orange peel, graphite, leather.
On the mouth it’s sweet at the start with notes of orange and chocolate. There is also a balsamic note with eucalyptus and an austere touch with ink.
The finish is long.
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
